“Pursuing a bachelor degree towards Data Science and Technology has been one of the most remarkable experiences in my life. It gives me the opportunity to fulfill my passion of making sense of data. The well-designed curriculum prepares me for internships and research opportunities with different professors. However, the whole journey would not be nearly as meaningful without the incredible fellows I have met in the Data Science family and the much larger School of Science community. As part of the school, I am fortunate enough to have joined the MenTernship Program and attended a few service trips. Can’t wait for future adventures to come!”
