My Background

I was a data analyst at an economic consulting firm after completing a BA in psychology and a BA in anthropology from UC Santa Barbara. I wanted to build my skill set so I could grow in my career. I chose Northeastern’s Align program because my background was not in computer science, and I wanted a program focused on practical experience. The co-op program stood out to me as a valuable opportunity.

My Future

I hope to advance in software/data engineering and be challenged with more complex projects in my next role.
