A new generation of African data scientists learns and grows through Zindi mentorship

“The Zindi Mentorship Programme was a journey worth taking; I’ve really learned a lot that I can put in practice. My group helped me understand the power of working together; we enjoyed it and ended up on the top of the leaderboard together.” — John Godday, Nigeria

“I’m new in this field; I had never even made a Zindi submission when I started. This journey has been rewarding, and definitely a boost to my career. I hope I am an encouragement to people just starting out or struggling with data science. Keep working hard, keep practicing and tackling problems.” — Njeri Maina, Kenya

“There is no single path to mastery in data science. What matters is taking on different challenges and problems, learning to extract insight; that’s how you will grow.” — Anthony Mipawa, Tanzania
