Women Who Code Scholarship Winner Using What She Learned In Metis Intro Course

By Emily Wilson • November 17, 2017

Allison Hegel recently won a scholarship to our Live Online Intro to Data Science course through Women Who Code's weekly publication, CODE Review. Currently earning her Ph.D. in English, she's working on a project analyzing book reviews on sites like Goodreads and Amazon and has found it useful to start digging into the data. 

"Data science is making its way into lots of unexpected fields like mine, and it allows us to look at a much wider range of books and a more democratic sample of opinions than we have in the past. It’s great to be able to switch between reading a theory of the internet in the morning and coding in the afternoon," she said in a recent interview with Women Who Code. 

Women Who Code published the full interview in a recent blog post, exploring Allison's aspirations, dreams, experiences at Metis, and how she plans to use what she learned in the course to achieve her goals. We encourage you to read the full article, and we're so happy to have played a role in Allison's journey toward using data science in her field! 

"The Metis Data Science course was the most interactive online course I’ve ever taken," she said. "The instructor and TA made the class feel like we were all in the same room," she said, "and we built up a really supportive community over the six weeks. This made learning a huge amount of material much more manageable."
