Do any of you work primarily with men? How do you balance being one of the only (if not THE only) women on a team? Does it alter the way you communicate at all?

What would you suggest for an inspiring data scientist?


My major is Information Analytics and Data Communication. I have a very strong math background, know basic Java, am working towards a certificate from Microsoft in Data Science, and am working on a Kaggle competition. What do you suggest for career?  I'm a Senior graduating  with my B.S in December, but I am going to Graduate School.
