I hired many data scientists in my career and this sentence is absolute gold.

1) Data science experience comes from "practical projects".

2) In order to understand and solve problems you should be "interested in" them.

3) This will indeed give you a "massive edge" because you have a track record in solving problems using data, which is what companies want from data scientists.
