Hi, I’m Justin!
Hi, I’m Justin, the founder of Justjooz, and I hope to share my dedication to constant self-improvement with others.
I hold a bachelor’s degree in biological sciences from NTU, but successfully pivoted to a data analyst career.
Subsequently, I started this site to help others learn more about analytics, tech, and AI.
Justjooz is my personal website and blog that aims to share about the latest tech!
The name was created from my name + my nickname.
- Just -> from Justin
- Jooz -> an old nickname from my childhood days
More about ME!
Hi, I’m Justin 👋🏻
tl;dr – I’m a tech blogger and I want to help you optimize your life through tech through web3, analytics and home content!
And here’s my personal story.
Since a young age, I’ve always been curious about how things work and how I can further optimize them. I constantly crave innovative ways to work around situations because I am lazy.
I like to work smart and not just blindly hard!
However, with an Asian upbringing, education was my primary focus.
I was fortunate to study biological sciences in college and successfully graduated in 2021.
While doing my bioscience degree, I was constantly searching for something that would give me higher satisfaction. I knew I was not cut out for the typical research path that led to a Ph.D.
I joined my school club as a President, took part in data science competitions, learned how to code, wrote a blog, and passionately sought the next big thing to learn.
I was fascinated with data analytics because of a certain Professor (thank you, Prof Wils!) and a biostatistics module I took. There were also several reasons why I picked it as my career.
Data analytics was rather tough but not impossible to learn.
I watched YouTube tutorials, took online courses and online + physical classes, and self-taught myself programming.
I even remember being so desperate to take up ANY form of an internship, paid or unpaid, to get some traction to practice and showcase my skills to employers.
As a result, I gave up the poor job prospects of my major and began a job in data analytics, landing my first job as a Data Analyst at a local hospital.
Although I loved the data analytics industry because it’s deemed somewhat cool, I soon realized it was only fun when I could solve problems that required innovative solutions.
Work started to get mundane, with the same repetitive tasks being done repeatedly with small bug fixes required.
I longed for a change in my life.
Then, 2020 came by, and my life was changed forever.
The pandemic hit, and I was forced to work from home. I started dabbling with building a stronger online presence for myself. I started reading self-improvement e-books on my Kindle and grew my self-awareness levels.
With the year, I was quickly hit by consecutive down moments in my life:
- I had no luck in love
- I lost my beloved grandmother
- , and the worst of it all – I lost my mum to Stage 4 Pancreatic Cancer,
This happened all within one year.
Taking one blow after another, I sought the meaning of life harder than I could ever have done before.
That’s when I knew what people meant by “death helps us appreciate life”, as cliche as it sounds.
I developed a sense of lucid purpose in those formative yet pivotal years of my early 20s.
Then I had an epiphany moment!
I realized that it’s not just about treasuring life, it’s about giving my life back to others and helping others – all while finding the freedom of creative expression through blogging!
And so I began creating this blog as an outlet for all my energy, powered by my relentless quest for something new and better.
I later discovered the highly disruptive and innovative Web 3.0 space, where I was right in my zone of excellence. I knew I wanted to share my knowledge with others like you.
Recently, my added knowledge in tech, analytics, home tech, and web3 has snowballed to become a great advantage that I use to blog and share with you.
And this blog has been my expression of giving back and sharing my information with the masses like you.
So join me on this journey of finding and sharing innovative ideas where we learn, apply and optimize our lives through tech,.
See you around!
