Hi, I discovered this platform to study Chinese language; however, the cutting-edge skills offer, made me face my anxiety problems -- ending in cluttering myself with courses and closing my first account. 

By exploring these courses, however, I later on also discovered some abstract level skills (such as Experiment Design, or Data Visualization along with Computational skills) which hinted me to going on in my personal search for self-organizational skills.

At the moment I could just develop a study system which joins multi-tasking and prioritization together with creative activity , and it is working -- actually for the first time, I am consistent in doing a single course.

I am a mechatronics engineer who have been working as direction driller field engineer at Schlumberger for 8 years. Tech enthusiast who have been in love with programming for so long. Started by learning Arduino programming for my robotic arm project in college then learned about web development (HTML, CSS, JS), then learned some android development and created my own app (Cairo Tour).  Last year 2020 i was released from Schlumberger due to low operation during Covid-19 Pandemic.

I have been invited to participate in Data Science Professional program and i am now learning data science to shift my career towards data science field.

I have been interested in data science for so long and learned a few stuff about it but being invited to this program by NTL (NTL |Next Technology Leaders) is a big opportunity and i hope to make it worth it. 
I wish the best to all the other learners in the community.

My name is William. I am from the United States. Here’s a blurb about me from my bio:


| recently took a successful exit from a company I started as the Co-Founder and Chief Strategy Officer. In less than 2 years we had a multi-billion dollar valuation that only continues to grow. Now that I've taken my exit, I am transforming into, what is my passion, a Data Scientist. I look forward to learning and collaborating with others, as it would be awesome to be able to start generating contract revenue and/or join the next disruptive tech as either a founder, investor, contributor, board of director and/or adviser yet I am at the point in my career it would take a really special opportunity and company for me to become part of the operating company. Who know's what the future stores yet one thing I know is I need to get to studying versus continue to write about me... Lol 

Feel free to reach out… 





Hi !

My name is Tiffany and I'm from the USA.

I just enrolled in the ux design course.

I have a bachelors degree in Business administration with a focus in marketing. I want to build up my skills to land a career in creating and designing digital content. Since I have a passion for art and I'm very creative,  I believe this course will be beneficial.

 I recently self published a children book- I wrote and illustrated- called “Sugar Buggies”. The book was inspired by my daughter and the children who I worked with at the boys and girls club. During covid I had time to reflect on my goals and began exploring possibilities. I started a podcast -, and I have a website where I blog and write articles that highlights art, culture and community that become casualties to gentrification in inner cities. 

I’m ready to learn, grow, and open for new opportunities that I never ever thought were possible. Im very grateful for this platform in helping me realize that.
