I joined DataEthics4All because as soon as I explored their activities and understood their mission, I realized this organization is a change-making entity. I appreciated the fact that DataEthics4All welcomed members from different education levels, backgrounds and industries and unified them with the purpose of being ethical data practitioners and inclusive AI enthusiasts.
My internship for summer 2021 was Data Storytelling. I’ve had the honor to work closely with the talented Leadership Council of DataEthics4All. During this internship, I had the opportunity to learn more about data ethics from different perspectives and about how I, as a data practitioner can raise awareness about ethical data use. I’ve also enhanced my skills in data analysis, visualization and storytelling as well as my research skills on every topic I chose to tackle and share with the DataEthics4All community.
That is why I want to thank especially Shilpi Agarwal for her constant support and for believing in me, as well as Kevin Dias for being an inspiring supervisor to me. The sense of accomplishment at the end of my internship is very beautiful especially during the AI DIET World event preparations. This internship was very insightful for me, given that I’m in my first steps of career development and I’m grateful for that.
I feel really proud to belong to such an amazing team and very privileged to have the chance to expand my professional network with such accomplished people. I encourage every student to join DataEthics4All and make the best out of their experience like I have.
