Conversations with my teammates have shown me that they paths to a successful datascience career are as diverse as python packages. Four years ago, I would have probably waved off the sheer thought of pursuing a career in data science, I laughed tiredly. My interests at that time were more focused on political science and history. However, after a few detours I found my passion for the field and today I couldn't imagine doing anything else.
I would be super interested to hear how other people ended up in their current positions and what convinced them to take this path.
