Yup, that's me! Talking about data...
...and you might wonder how I ended up in this situation
My name is Leni, a proud Czech, born and raised in a small town of Hradec Králové in the Czech Republic. Since my childhood, I always wanted to understand things and how they worked. Well, no surprise that I ended up working with data and become a huge fan of technology in general.
My professional career in online media started with my first real job of social media editor in Czech TV, a public broadcaster in the Czech Republic. Since then I started educating myself on daily basis in the field of online media and digital marketing. Though the news is always a big passion for me and marketing was a great way to get to know online communities and consumer behavior, during my another job as a data analyst in Socialbakers, I finally found "my thing". Data.
Thanks to my coding passion and problem solving & data-oriented approach to everything I now fully focus on the analysis of data on social media, news and online communities in general. I give lectures, write a blog, and I'm in general interested in data privacy, mental health issues connected to using social media and how to educate people on these topics. I use R and am enjoying every single stage of this love-hate relationship through DataCamp and wonderful community around R Studio. I read a lot, enjoy greatly comic books and sci-fi, spend too much time on Twitter and try to always stay the most curious person in the room.
At the beginning of 2017, I defended my Master's thesis about Czech journalists on Twitter and therefore finished my university studies (at least for now...). Currently, I am preparing myself for a possible Ph.D. path in the USA in the near future.
