ScholarX2020 — Part 03
As I approach the end of ScholarX, I wish to thank SEF for selecting and granting me the opportunity to connect with a mentor in my field of interest. This has been an innovative learning experience, from studying courses online to hands-on practical sessions with my mentor.
I wish to thank my mentor, Isuru Daulagala, for the constant support and encouragement in moving forward in ScholarX. As mentioned in my previous update, the beginning was a struggle as I had just ventured into Data Science and Analytics. However, with Isuru’s support I was able to efficiently learn the concepts and consistently apply it into online competitions.
Looking back, I can only say that I am glad I applied for ScholarX. This program enables you to not just connect with a mentor in your field but to understand what they do. It helped me to understand the actual trends within Data Science and how it is applied across various situations, some of which I heard for the very first time. It helped me realize the growth potential of Data Science and Analytics especially within Sri Lanka and that we are still at the beginning of an exciting journey.
Thank you to SEF and the team for initiating such a program and wish you and the next intake the best of luck!
