MAIP EXPERIENCE

My experience as a maip fellow has been eye-opening career-wise, highly opinionated and, definitely worth a discussion. Maip was a rollercoaster of highs, lows, and mids. Maip empowered me in ways no other ever program has, helping me overcome the anxiety of speaking publicly and lack of will. The Maip fellows of 2020 will always be dear to me due to their hard work, crazy potential, and ability to shake up a room or in, other words, a flawed industry. From the tests of Dentsu to the Brave Space sessions, we opened up and learned from one another and our differences as Maip fellows. Being in this program with some of the best advertising companies in the world has made my career goals clearer. Thank You, MAIP2020.

DATA ANALYTICS

Making Data Analytics my concentration for the MAIP fellowship was inspired through a good friend and the overall lack of knowledge of the role. I chose this module because I wanted the skill under my belt just because I know how important it is to keep track of advertisements' performance. Before the program, I had no idea what a KPI or Data insight was but, thanks to maip, I learned the role of what it takes to be a data analyst and how practical the job can be. Data Analytics throughout the program was challenging but overall, it helped me learn and strengthen my passion for what I want to do in the advertising world.
