Join us live online for a discussion with an inspiring Galvanize graduate who beat the odds, won a scholarship, & became a Data Scientist.
About this Event
Post Grad is an ongoing series where we sit down with a Galvanize alumni to talk about their journey to, through, & beyond the bootcamp. Learn about their unique experience in an exclusive interview then get all of your own questions answered with a round of Ask Me Anything!
All are welcome!
About the Guest:
Kiara Hern is a budding data scientist interested in using data to inform the change she wants to see in the world. Most recently, she served as Outreach Grid's first Forward Deployment Engineer, working directly with community organizers, nonprofit administrators, & city officials to learn more about their communities, & build technological solutions to help make homelessness rare, brief, & nonrecurring in cities & counties across America.
Prior to Outreach Grid, she worked in the education sector, developing arts & cultural programs for youth & working to increase access to cultural & higher education opportunities for underserved communities in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.
When she's not coding, you can find her doodling, obsessing over stationary, or strolling around an art museum. She also loves chatting about data science & ways to use data for good!
About the Host:
Lauren Taylor (aka "LT") started her career in radio, DJ'ing for a small college-town station before she found herself immersed in the Austin startup scene. Her passion for the local tech community & fostering strong connections eventually led her to Galvanize as a Developer Evangelist. In her free time, you'll find her planning her next adventure or snuggled up on the couch watching the latest binge-worthy series with her partner & their 3 fur babies, who are all shamelessly named after Supernatural characters.
