What was your first job?
I worked as a Teaching Associate in the University of the Philippines Los Baños (Institute of Statistics) for 2 years, while at the same time taking up my Master of Science in Statistics. Working in the academy honed my teaching and presentation skills, as well as my data analysis expertise, which proves to be very essential in my current jobs.
The best piece of advice I’ve ever been given is…
“Do your best and God will do the rest.” This helps me to think that I should always try and give my best in everything that I do so that I will not have regrets whatever the outcome would be.
If I were a superhero, my superpower would be…
Teleportation (and/or invisibility) so that I can explore different places in the world freely and see what Ican do in my own small capacity to somehow help the world be a better place to live in.
What motivated you to select this career path?
Since I was a child, math always seemed interesting to me. At a young age, I am already aware of what my mother does for a living as a statistician. I also got more interested in
statistics during high school and college since it enables and empowers people to make data-driven decisions.
