I am majoring in Social Data Analytics and Research at UTDallas and looking for opportunities in the social sector. I have previously worked as a Data Analyst at a botique consulting firm for ~2.7 years.

I got into the EA van thanks to 80k hours. And I got into the 80k hours van when I saw it on HackerNews. And I got into the HackerNews van since CGP Grey mentioned it on the Hello Internet podcast. And I got into Hello Internet (the first podcast I ever listened to) because my family was finally willing to get an internet connection. And my family was able to get an internet connection because of rising internet penetration in India.
So, pop quiz - is increasing internet penetration a good intervention for EA community building? Feel free to DM me your answer and say hi to me! :-)
Point me to opportunities for a Data Analyst to work in the social sector
