When you win the Super Bowl, everything you believe about yourself comes true for other people. I want people to have that moment in their life, to push through self doubt, failure, embarrassment, so they can enjoy the life of their dreams by choosing their mindset

Why are you currently studying Python & Data Analytics?
This is the future. Data also is an incredible tool in storytelling. I can tell you we need more diversity in the workplace, or I can show you the fact that hiring and retaining diverse talent increases profits 19%. Data is an entire way of language for many of us. Pulling that, collecting that, programming, sharing, protecting - this is where our future lies. I want to be a part of it.
