Last week, I spent a few days completing an article based on a workshop that my team conducted in line with the International Women’s Day celebration. The workshop was about discovering your voice (i.e yourself).
Writing the article inspired me to challenge myself to be “observant of new opportunities” popping up around me. One particular idea that kept cropping up is data science.
So, I decided to enrol for a free introductory course on Data Science on udemy. It’s a course that tells me what to expect about data science before committing to this new area.
At a glance, the odds seem to be stacked around me already. I am an Arts student through and through. I struggle with subjects like maths and science and have avoided them all of my life. Data Science, as I discovered, is right down the alley of statisticians and the likes.
But I figured I should at least find out what Data Science is all about. I like the idea of using data to gather insights and predict outcomes.
That is one of the things that I want to learn this year. I also want to learn how to create GIFs, edit videos and learn to code. If life begins at 40, then let me celebrate my 40th year of being alive by learning all these skills.
Wish me luck!
