Description of my final project

Project Name: SpotiScry

My team and I are building a dataset of 6,000 Hip-Hop songs using Spotify’s API. Our goals are to create a regression model that predicts song popularity, and determine what makes a song a hit or a miss.

Hire me because:

I'm a go-getter and a trailblazer. There aren't a whole lot of data scientists who look like me and share my experiences. My tenacious adaptivity and innovation are unique assets to any workplace that values growth. Every day I try to be at least 1% better than the me of yesterday. When I learn something, I apply that knowledge immediately and in a way that personally resonates with me.

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

Iterating through the pipeline, being proved wrong in assumptions about the data, finding new questions in the answers, and reiterating (and reiterating, and reiterating).
