EUGENIO MANFREDI

Data Scientist

What were you doing before you joined the Uprise Academy program?

I was stuck in a job that I didn't like, and it wasn't fulfilling me at all. I was looking for a significant change both personally and professionally.

How has your career changed since graduating from Uprise Academy?

After the program my life has changed a lot. I was more open to new experiences, which led me to travel to Cambodia directly after the program. I then moved to Berlin in order to finish my specialisation in Data Science. I am now working at Accenture in Milan in the field of Data Science.

What surprised you the most about Uprise Academy?

The best and most important aspect of the program for me was to feel part of a community. The people I met made me feel extremely supported and ultimately like I was part of something unique.

What advice would you give to someone thinking about applying for the program?

Have no fear and leave your old self behind. The program can be the push you needed in order to move towards a positive change in your life and career.
