My interests include combatting bias within AI and building data visualizations to tell stories. I have taken online classes on machine learning on Coursera/Udemy. My primary interest is in the MIT LGO program or other dual-degree programs. I will also consider a few other top MBA programs. I am looking for more advice on how to buff up my application
