WHY HAVE YOU APPLIED TO STUDY THIS COURSE
I went through my education and life practically just living and waiting to get married and be a woman who needs a man. This coupled with an education system that doesn’t empower students resulted in me having weak grades in University. I didn’t realize the potential I had in me early enough. I was very good in basic Mathematics and grew up around computers, which led me to studying Computer Science at the University but that was it, I didn’t have a career plan, I just chose what I was familiar with. Luckily for me, I didn’t get married straight out of school and need to rely on a man like I thought I would, I got a job in IT/Computing and the experience, life after school generally helped me realize my goals. I realized I loved using the computer to solve complex problems for people. Along the years, I have realized the importance of taking data and working on data to improve lives. I have applied to data analytics not only because it’s been termed “the sexiest job of the 21st century” but because I know having the skill would improve the quality of my job.
WHY HAVE YOU CHOSEN TO STUDY THIS COURSE AT DEAKIN UNIVERSITY
Based on my research, I have noticed that I’m limited by experience and knowledge of the world and also today’s technology. This is why I have decided to pursue a postgraduate degree in Data Science in a country far from mine and in your prestigious university. I decided to study in Australia because it’s human development index is high and it has a favorable weather condition I believe I can adapt to. I chose Deakin because it is a multicultural University which is among the best schools in Australia. My passion for technology and analysis will drive me to work as hard as I can.
