    I found this article after attending a club meeting where our guest speaker was a Data Scientist at Netflix. I found her work in the field fascinating, especially when she mentioned how she took large amounts of data and wrote code to automate analysis, or how companies with such massive inputs of consumer data store this information. I was astonished when she brought up the fact that women make up only 16%-25% of data jobs at major tech companies. Given how integral data science is to machine learning and in managing big data, I feel that this highlights the need for more exposure to this field. Personally, I was extremely inspired when she mentioned how she started out in a completely different major and transitioned into data science later in her career by teaching herself languages like SQL, R, and Python.
