#51: “An Uzbek Woman’s Path to Data Science” with Sally Mitrofanov of Microsoft | Educative Sessions
Sally Mitrofanov started in America from as an Uzbekistan immigrant tenth-grader without any idea what to do with her life or how to navigate the college system in a new country. She tried many different directions until she stumbled into a data science meetup in Seattle, then quit her job and hoped she had what it takes to become a data scientist.

Sally Mitrofanov came to the US with her family when she was 15 from Uzbekistan. She studied International Studies and Economics at Towson University. Then she self-studied Actuarial Science and worked as life insurance pricing analyst for 3 years before she discovered data science. She then went through the Galvanize DSI program and landed her first job at AWS Fraud Prevention. Now she works at Microsoft in the Customer Growth Analytics group.
