Biography: I am an iSchool undergraduate and on the Fighting Illini Co-ed Cheer team. I'm also a member of the professional agricultural sorority Sigma Alpha. I'm excited to see where my time at the iSchool takes me!
Why Information Sciences: I accepted an internship with Caterpillar for Data Analytics and thought that learning the broad subject of Statistics didn't seem like the proper education for that type of position which was really my end goal as a career. I really enjoy the applied side of Statistics (which isn't often a topic in stats courses) and analyzing what everything truly means which is what I am looking to do as a career. After finding IS107 and currently taking it and enjoying, it seems I have found a better match in Information Science.
