AUDIO: Modern inspiring music.
VISUAL: Various shot of TANNYA addressing the camera and her childhood photographs.
TANNYA SPEAKS: I really like working with patterns and finding patterns, and I have always been curious when I was a child. So I think my degree, that is, data science, is kind of related to that, finding hidden patterns and some links in the data that I have just found out.
VISUAL: Street shots of the Melbourne CDB.
TANNYA SPEAKS: My brother's school, they had a tie up with RMIT, and then he told me that RMIT sounds like a pretty good university. And then when I looked at the reviews, and I looked at the course structure here in RMIT, I found out that yeah, I could do all this, and I'm pretty excited about this.
VISUAL: Shots of TANNYA as she walks around Melbourne.
TANNYA SPEAKS: Moving from Delhi, India to Melbourne was a big challenge because I did not have any family support here, and I did not know anybody. It's just that a few of my friends had come here, and I was like, "Okay, if they can do it I can also do it. I can move to a whole different continent." So, making friends wasn't that difficult for me because Melbourne has a pretty diverse culture, and you meet people from different backgrounds every day. They're quite open and friendly as well, so the environment here is really warm and approachable.
TANNYA SPEAKS: I'm a foodie. I love exploring food. So when I came to Melbourne I always had Indian food, but when I came here I tried so many different cuisines. I tried Korean, Japanese, Chinese, Turkish, and out of all of them I love noodles. It's like my guilty pleasure, and I take a big bowl of noodles and everything and then just dig in.
VISUAL: Interiors of a foodcourt.
TANNYA SPEAKS: Last year we participated in our Datathon. The competition was about Melbourne public transport data, and the winner of the competition gets to do internship in ANZ. So me and a few of my classmates, we grouped up for that competition, and we actually had developed an app. So, you put in your journey, your time, and then it calculates whether you should take a car or a public transport for your specific journey. And that is how I got an internship from ANZ.
VISUAL: TANNYA talks to the camera.
TANNYA SPEAKS: What's next for me is getting a job as a data scientist and probably settling in Melbourne, but a few years. Yeah.
