Today I’d like to share my short success story.
Last summer I have graduated Information Security Bachlor degree in ITMO University. And as many my peers, I was looking for my calling: I worked as a bratender and as a server during my Work&Travel experience, was a cook in a haute cuisine restaraunt, translated novels for publisher in Russia, alone developed and launched a mobile game and etc. But that was simply not mine.
Then I tried to structurized and analyize all things I like to do. And here It hit me - I like to analyze. I decided to continue in Data Science\Data Analysis Master Degree. Everywhere I was rejected. As an example, I was ranked 1700 in one of the university I applied for.
Then I decided to pass a course in Data Analysis. There are a lot of courses in my native language but none of them was apprropriate (knowledge was pretty disordered, I couldn’t understand how to collect, operate and clean the information, etc).
FORTUNATELY, I faced the DataQuest course. I fell in love with Data Analysis because of YOU, guys. I passed Data Analyst in Python Path (even become a champion of the week once), got a robust base of knowledge, and fill in my portfolio. Time has come to apply for Master Degree again. And you know what? I GOT ADMITTED TO THE UNIVERSITY I WAS DREAMED OF! I was 1700th before, and now I am one of the admitted.
I am glad that DQ exists. Thank you Data Quest for making us better.
Happy New Year!
