Description of my final project

Project Name: Fake News Capstone

My team's goal for this project was to identify specific phrases and words within fake news and real news articles, that can be used to accurately predict if a randomly sourced article is filled with fake news or real news. We utilized multiple NLP tools such as NLTK, bigrams, and trigrams to visualize the occurrences of fake news-related words. Our ultimate goal was to build a model that can accurately predict misleading information and warn the general public on what to look out for when reading their news.

Hire me because:

I am willing to apply myself to any problem I face in this industry. I seek to conquer complex data-driven problems through team-based and independent work. I understand that this career field is forever evolving which makes it imperative to continuously educate myself on new data science tools and methods.

Complete the following sentence: “In Data Science, I am most passionate about _____________”
