Jingya Kong[email protected]BSc PsychologyPersonal StatementApplying for The Master’s of Computer and Information Technology (MCIT)My interest in computer science was ignited during my strategy consulting internship at GrantThornton. There I engaged in sifting through and analyzing internal client data, identifyingways that clients could capitalize on market opportunities and improve their strategies. Thisexperience enabled me to witness how time-consuming desk research could be performed inminutes with Python syntax by sorting analysis reports with index magnitude and extractingkey words. During the process, I was totally intrigued by how programming techniques couldfacilitate to generate more accurate business forecasts and final strategic solutions for clients,which propelled me to start exploring the application of technology in diverse fields.Inspired by this experience, I decided to complete laborious data pre-processing task bytaking advantage of programming tools when I worked as a research assistant at UCL SpeechLab. To collect, encode, and clean experimental data from 74 participants, I self-learnedPython on Coursera and suggested colleagues to build an automatic data processing programtogether. This mission was challenging while the result was quite rewarding - with the system,total time required for data pre-processing was reduced by up to 250%.Experiencing computer software’s power in formulating business strategyand elevating work efficiency,my resolution to pursue a master’s degree in computerscience was made, andmy interest in computer science gradually developedinto a professional goal:to become a software developer in strategy consultingcompanies such as McKinsey.I aspireto build intelligent software that could enhance
