Hi, I'm an IT consultant trying to learn new things, and I'm also a mom. My dream would be to work with smartworking to better reconcile family and work because I am a mother, but in my country of origin (Italy) it is very difficult. I really like to learn new things and I hope to find interesting people in this community.

Hi @Tina great to meet you, thanks for joining our community! As a mother who works (and doesn't find enough time to study!) I understand your struggle. Thankfully Coursera allows me to be flexible about when I'm in the office which really helps a lot!

How old is your child or children? My daughter just turned 1.

I'm sure there are many other working and studying moms in this community - I, and I'm sure Tina, would love to hear from you about how you balance work and family. Especially if you've discovered any great tips you can share!

Thanks for posting Tina!

I think it's great for someone who already works hard, to commit to self-improvement and education. I applaud you.

I am sure you will find a lot of interesting people on Coursera; it is a very diverse group of people from all over the world.

Feel free to post any time you have questions or concerns. I wish you the best!
