Xiaoyan (Ivy) Yin

Ivy graduated with Master of Professional Accounting from Macquarie University and discovered the power of data analytics during an internship. A friend told her about the Data School, and she did not think twice about applying. She fell in love with Tableau during the application process and has not looked back since.

Ivy loves the diversity of food Sydney has to offer but in her opinion nothing beats the traditional Cantonese food.
