personal profile - additional information

Question:In addition to the specific information requested in all of the AIF questions, please tell us anything else about yourself that you would like us to know when we review your application. Please make sure to complete all sections of the AIF before submitting this page. (900 character limit)

In addition to my projects, I have already taken various online courses. I've completed courses and received certifications from IBM in Python for Data Science and Machine Learning in Python. Besides computer science and biology, I am also greatly interested in journalism as a hobby. In the past few years, I have written articles on events that have happened using interviews and thorough research tactics for websites such as *** ******. I'd be greatly interested in joining the student newspaper Imprint while studying at the University of Waterloo. While I am not pursuing journalism as a career, it would definitely provide me with a skill set that I could apply in many other aspects of my future career.

This statement is meant to get to know you beyond your interest in Data Science and Machine Learning. I believe that the statement would be stronger if you could just discuss your other activity as a journalist and leave the part about the IBM certification out of it. That portion should be included in a different essay or statement response, one that is directly related to your discussion of your chosen course. Instead, focus on building your discussion regarding your hobby as a blogger and why you feel it has helped prepare you for further studies in this course. You don't have to mention that you are not pursuing a journalism career. Instead, discuss how the hobby has allowed you the opportunity to develop skills that you feel will help you succeed as a student under this course choice.
