Bio

Improve myself in the world of data science and business to give back to the smaller communities. The world is a myriad of information; to categorize and analyze is one way we can help individuals and businesses get the correct knowledge to better themselves. Data is a major part of society and we can use a lot of the information we have now to help communities. By gathering data on businesses in small communities I can analyze what aspects brings in more revenue and what hinders efficiency. This can effectively aid businesses, create more job opportunities, and increase profit.

      Evolving and improving every day, gathering, implementing, and manipulating data continuously. The internet is a whole world of information that we can access through a device smaller than a remote and lighter than a can of coke. The internet allows people to connect instantaneously but opens a lot of us to misinformation. With so much data, we have to take time to fact-check and understand the statistics we are getting as they can be misleading. It's why I have a passion to become a data analyst to take the significant amounts of data we get and categorize and implement it to make for a more efficient society. Data Analysts are going to be necessary for our future. We live in the era of big data, and with a myriad of information, it is hard to figure out what it means and if it is correct. As a future data analyst, I plan to use my skills with programming and analytical skills to break down the data and use it to better businesses and to inform communities. The United States has communities' that are so polarized that we as a nation can't come together to solve: Covid-19. More than 90% of the new cases are because of the unvaccinated population, and the reason is misinformation. As more people create programs to sort the statistics, the correct information can be given to the public. To illustrate the vaccine does not make people infertile or that Corona is a real threat. The numerous claims about the vaccine being unsafe are harming society and getting more people in hospital beds. This brings me to developing and improving algorithms notably on social media websites, to find incorrect material and make it known. Countless more sectors of knowledge can be used to improve our lives. Recently I pulled data from yahoo finance to calculate my expected returns on stocks in my portfolio. By using the CAPM formula I was able to analyze how aggressive and profitable an asset can be. The formula gave me insight into how my portfolio performs in accordance with the overall market so that I can adjust based on the aggressiveness of the asset. Information can be pulled from anywhere on the internet. However, by organizing it and studying data we can use it to educate others and prepare for the future. Therefore, I have started improving my programming skills in Python and my analytical skills when it comes to interpreting statistics. We have the information, we need to present it appropriately.

      Innovative and ingenious; Nikola Tesla. His findings of Alternating current is why I have the opportunity to sit down and submit an application on my laptop. He transformed society by allowing electricity to travel the globe as AC allows electricity to travel great lengths because it can change voltages. His passion and intelligence is inspiring, to say he is a great scientist is an understatement.
