About me

Hi, my name is Tina and I’m a data scientist at a FAANG company. I was pre-med studying pharmacology at the University of Toronto until I finally accepted that I would make a terrible doctor. I didn’t know what to do with myself so I worked for a year as a research assistant for a bioinformatics lab where I learned how to code and became interested in data science. I then did a masters in computer science (MCIT) at the University of Pennsylvania before ending up at my current job in tech ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Thank you so much! I'm just getting started learning to code and this was tremendously helpful for me

  5. I wanted to learn how to code because I wanted to create a random food recommandation programm. I got stuck so I was looking for some helpful videos on Youtube when I found this video. I freaked out when you started talkin about the food recommandation programm!! haha

  6. ( If I could start over? ) Lady don't code for 2 or 3 month you will forget most of the things. That makes me wonder if I chose the right career.
