What is AI?

I’m by no means an expert in AI, but it is NOT perfect and will not take over humans. It would help speed processes, but it will still require human intervention.

There is data bias from AI and it’s only as good as your data was. There’s also a lot of bias with the data you put in, so it’s always very important to make sure you try to remove bias.

What did you think of the situation in the graphic? Are you surprised?

Do you need to code?

I did an Instagram reel before on 8 tech jobs without coding, and unfortunately the caption (that had a lot of tons of caveats and notes) dropped due to a glitch on Instagram, but many thought the roles I mentioned did require coding so I made this instead.

I still think coding is a very important skill to have regardless if it requires coding or not because it can help you with understanding the role and work or to actually do the work itself.

As someone who didn’t study computer science, there are many ways you can use your resources in school, out of school, on the job or internship, or around you. Free or not! This is how I got my experience and how you can as well! Even if my current job does not require coding, the logical thinking of understanding how code performs helps a lot in structuring your thinking interacting with a system.

Dr. Nicole Tschierske: Career Empowerment for Women in STEM | WOMEN OF INSPIRATION

Dr. Nicole Tschierske is passionate about helping overlooked women in STEM become influential, so they can confidently unlock new opportunities for themselves, get their employers saying “we need you on this job!” and make a bigger impact. As a Scientist and Positive Psychology Coach, Nicole helps her clients strategically turn their career frustrations into a renewed love for their work.

In this episode, we dive into a lot of the problems women in STEM face and discuss how we can push through them to empower our careers!

What is Cloud?

Cloud is HOT. Especially with the pandemic, more and more companies are pushing to go to the cloud. I think a lot of people don’t exactly know how cloud is everywhere, and this will show you TRULY that it’s all around you – even software you may have used without knowing.

Just imagine using a CD, DVD, flash drives, even a FLOPPY DISK (comment down below if you know how one looks like 😂😂😂)! I made a poll on my YouTube channel’s community tab on what tech excites my subscribers the most and they said cloud and AI. Cloud is what many are going towards now and @accenture’s Cloud First even invested $3B to accelerate clients’ move to cloud and digital transformation.

If you want a tech or consulting job of high demand, cloud is the way to go! What are your favorite cloud services? I’m sure they are there, you probably just didn’t know!

Jackie Faye: Asian American Data Engineer & Rapper from the South | WOMEN OF INSPIRATION

Jackie Faye is a woman of many talents! After studying computer science and business in college, she is now a data engineer AND an up-and-coming rapper in New York City. With tech and hip hop being very male dominant, I was very curious about how Jackie was doing what she was doing and the why factor behind it all. Especially when she is a Chinese Korean American LGBTQ woman from Dallas, Texas, which is totally against the norm.

You HAVE to listen to her most recent single. It’s absolute fire! If you’re a Chinese American and you’re familiar with Jackie Chan Adventures, this is a blast from the past!

It’s okay to have emotions.

Something I struggled for the longest time is actually being okay with having emotions. It may have been the way I was raised, but I always associated women as being overly emotional, so I tried to detach myself from that to protect myself and also be respected more.

I remember in college when I was trying to put up a strong front, but when my two friends were just randomly talking to me about life, I had to “excuse myself” because a panic attack was triggered from something we were talking about. They saw through that bullshit and said it was okay to let it out and have emotions.

Now I cry openly when watching movies or when life happens, so I actually EMBRACE it by announcing it (kind of)! Thankfully I have cats this time to comfort me and lick my tears!
