A year as the Vice President in Emergent has been a rollercoaster of fun and learning. What amazed me the most throughout this year is that I got to discover what type of leader I am. It is truly rewarding to see people grow and when you sit together at the big moments such as the data4good at the end of the day and see how your team's and your vision and goals have been realized! I truly recommend this role to anyone that loves talking, solving problems, and wants to be involved in a fast-paced decision-making environment across the organization.

I took on the role of Lead D4GC in search of a new Challenge and I surely got it! When I first started out I had little to no experience in event planning. Although it may have looked terrifying in the beginning, being able to get advise, insights and support from such an amazing team was absolutely wonderful. You quickly realize you are never standing alone facing a challenge when joining Emergent. I am amazed looking back on all the things I've learned. Not only did I gain more soft and hard skills, I also learned more about myself and how I can be a better leader for others.

We started Emergent Consulting almost a year ago and it has been a fantastic journey. We saw our little division grow into a real powerhouse. We started things very ad hoc and here is where I found my passion in talking, negotiating, creating projects! It was very challenging to find and close clients, especially in the beginning, but it was really rewarding as well. I saw myself grow, become more communicative, social and got a deeper understanding of the current data science problems in business! I would recommend this role to anyone that really wants to get a hands-on approach to data science in industry.
