Lead Performance Analytics - Captify
- How did you get into data and technology, and why?
My love for data came from my inability to sit still! I need to be constantly learning and figuring something out. As a kid, my favourite games were puzzles and jigsaws and data is the same thing. Problem-solving, data and maths were the things that I really loved.
- What motivates you on a daily basis – what gets you up in the morning?
I love the creativity that comes from data and tech. Every single answer you can get to in a million different ways and every data scientist, analyst or data technician will find their own way to solve the same problem.
- What’s the biggest challenge that you face in your role?
Because of my age, it’s sometimes a challenge to be taken seriously. Having an equal footing regardless of your age or gender is a challenge, but I’m not going to change that on my own.
- How has a setback or obstacle shaped you?
When you’re a young adult, you feel like you need to adjust what you say, how you think, and what you look like to fit in with the people around you. That makes you adjust your personality and it’s easy to get lost in the constant moulding of yourself. Once you accept who you are and you understand what your values and beliefs are, and what you’re not willing to compromise on, it’s easier.
