Desperately need advice from senior Business Analysts/Data Analysts 

Hello everyone! I am lucky to find this forum! So without any delays :

I recently completed my bachelors in computer science from a well reputed university in my country. Unfortunately, I am a bad programmer by nature. Even during my last exams, I was not sure that I should apply for development job, qa job or ba job! I cracked an interview in a very good IT company and have been working there for 5 months. But slowly and gradually I realized that my doubt was correct that programming is not for me. Even if I hustle day and night for the next 2 years, I will still be a mediocre programmer. So I have decided that I would do something which I enjoy doing. 

During my bachelors my biggest strength as compared to all my friends were my presentation and communication skills. I got A grades in them. I love researching on topics and explaining them in the most easiest manner even if the topic is of AI or machine learning. I love to listen to people and think acording to their perspective. I love leading things, motivating my juniors and planning things way before. 

These all traits make me convinced that Business Analyst is something which I should try. Along with this as a side learning I will build up my Data Analysis skills by doing certifications etc. But I am not sure about Data Analyst, maybe business analyst role would be enough for me. But learning things is not a bad thing I guess. There is a very cool guy who has worked as a business analyst and data analyst too : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pIbL4aSUIas

So here I am with :

1) Bs Computer Science  2) 5 months(and counting) experience as Associate Software Engineer

Now I am doing some certifications from Linkedin Learning related to business analyst. I will provide list of courses and would need advice from you guys that which certifications i should complete quickly. 

Also I have to think ahead too. Should I do an Mba from a well reputed institute from my country and save money in my country or should I look for scholarships from abroad for any relavent masters program. Since I want myself to be earning in abroad where there are good oppurtunities for BAs.

Thanks a lot! Waiting for your precious advices! 

Note : The only thing which scares me is of getting unemployed since I am sole earner of house. There are plently of jobs of developers but not of BA.
