|HEADER - Application|
|What areas do you specialize in? (ex: Creative writing, web development, finance, activism, etc.)|
Creative thinking and brainstorming, data science, understanding of the global economy, financial analysis, machine learning, Microsoft Office, Python, Java
|Talk about a time where you organized/built/created something.|
For the Business and Information Technology Society, one of my main responsibilities is leading coding workshops, where I have to create programs that are comprehensive, concise, and informative. My process to creating these workshops always start with a preliminary version that I show to peers with little coding experience. This allows me to then take their feedback and adjust my workshop accordingly. So far, these workshops have been a great success!
|What is something you've learned related to your specializations, and what are your thoughts on it?|
By taking many data science courses online this summer, I developed quick problem solving skills. With no prior experience in data science, there were many instances in which I struggled to code for the projects I was trying to develop. I often had to take counter-intuitive approaches to get the results I was looking for, which further improved my problem solving and critical thinking skills. In addition, by progressing through these courses I learned to really enjoy the data science process.
|What are your passions, and how do you engage with them?|
I'd say I have always been very passionate about sports and in particular fantasy sports. I really enjoy the skills I apply to fantasy sports including identifying trends, analyzing data, and managing risk. I spend some of my free time researching about advanced fantasy stats and plan to work for the analytics department for UMD baseball next semester. Another area which I have always been interested is in entrepreneurship. Over these past few months, I have created a list of potential ventures.
|Have you applied to Startup Shell before?||No|
|Why do you want to join Startup Shell?|
Joining Startup Shell would allow me to connect with many highly-motivated and talented students. In particular, I feel that sharing my ideas with these individuals would allow me to further them and potentially turn them into ventures. In addition, joining Startup Shell would provide me with a wide array of resources that I could have access to, including mentorship from successful entrepreneurs.
