Biography: My name is David Alegre III. I am from Chicago, and one day I want to use Data Science to make improvements to the education system.
Why Information Sciences: Originally I was a Statistics major because I had really fallen in love with data science. I quickly realized that the statistics major was too much computing and lacked a social aspect and actual problem-solving. What I love about the major in Information Science, is the way that it incorporates technology, history, and sociology. With this in mind, I feel like I can learn so much more about what I'm passionate about through the major in Information Science. I really hope to gain some skills in computing ethics, research, and sociology. I want to be great at computing, while also having a deep understanding of the human perspective and the history of computing.
