It's #SuperheroDay so we are celebrating real life superheroes who are achieving something extraordinary every day.

They are the role models we need in today’s world to motivate and inspire us.

Meet Penny:

Studying mothers are our heroes – they manage to study in-between cooking meals, looking after family and – often –working full time!

Doing my MBA while having three babies hasn't always been easy (actually I don't think it's ever been easy), but nothing worth having ever is. Now when I return to work, I'll have a degree and a family. Perfect.”

Meet Val:

Studying for her first degree with Arden University at the age of 75, Val Bishop says it’s boosted her confidence and is recommending people of ANY age should study for degrees.

“I feel that I want to tell the world that this is what I’m doing and to say to people to try it yourself. If I can go back to learning at 75 with Arden, anyone can whatever their age. I would have to say you owe it to yourself.”

Meet Victoria:

It’s never too late to go after your dreams and get a degree, says Victoria Stakelum. She dropped out of college and worked in a call centre before deciding she wanted to go to university. Her experience is now driving her to help others as Deputy CEO of Arden University.
