Islande went to Brooklyn College, where she studied Computer science. She has always been captivated by how data helps organizations make insightful decisions. After graduating from college, she worked as a Data Entry Assistant.
In her role, she monitored data to see if there were any discrepancies. In December 2020, Islande graduated from COOP, where she learned about the Data School. COOP is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping individuals improve and learn technical and soft skills.
