I'm a data journalist and a recent graduate of Northeastern University's Journalism master's program. While there, I catered my courseload toward becoming a fierce competitor in the field of data journalism and learning multiple coding languages/libraries. When I think about my role in the industry, I find that my passion lies in the utilization of data as tools for advocacy, and an overall goal would be to increase the public's capacity for data literacy in an attempt to battle the fervent issue of misinformation.
