Hi Everyone!

I’m Jerbie from Manila, in the sunny shores of the Philippines! I’ve just completed the Python Specialization from U-M and Im currently taking the Analytic techniques for Business Specialization by Duke to prepare for a Data Science MicroMasters, and eventually (I hope) a Masters in Data Science or Analytics.

I work as an Asst Manager for a Business Intelligence Company, on the Data Gathering/Research side and I’m hoping to switch to a more technical career in Data Science and Analytics. Thats why im so excited to learn about platforms like Coursera that made learning more accessible to anyone in the world.

if you’d also like to expand your network, like I am :) please feel free to add me on Linked-In


Hope to meet a lot of different people, from different countries and backgrounds here :)

@Lochcarron - Thank you Scotty!


Yes, we’re safe. the earthquake hit the southern part of the country so we’re not really affected. Though of course those from that part are really devastated. I really appreciate your concern, thank you :) 

@Jerbie I have a long-standing study friend from courses we did at the start of Coursera who lives in the Philippines, and I lived 25 years in an earthquake country. So I am always  concerned for people who may be going through that trauma
