Hello everyone! My name is Steven, and I am a data science student at Minerva - a fully-remote US university where students travel to a different country every semester. For the first year, we spend both semesters in San Francisco (the school is based there), and then from the second year onwards, we spend each semester in the following cities:
All our classes are conducted on Minerva's proprietary video conferencing platform called the "Forum", and instead of exams, we have assignments where we work with local companies, get to know the local culture, and write a report about our experience.
For example, this summer, I built One Word Domains, which is a tool that allows you to browse through a list of all the available one-word domains out there. After a successful Product Hunt launch (got to #2!) and getting featured on the front page of Hacker News, I've received over 35,000 unique visitors and who bought 650+ domains from the site!
That's it about me! I'm looking forward to getting to know all of you here. And also, I've been doing remote work/study for over 4 years now and I love every second of it, so feel free to reach out to me for tips & tricks on how to navigate remote working!
