Hi, I'm David and currently employed at a major telecom in Fort Worth, Texas, USA. Currently my title is HR Technology Consultant where I manage an HR IT work entry portal. I graduated from Texas Wesleyan University with a business degree, and over the years worked in real estate, finance, defense, and IT. I went back to school to get my MBA from the University of Phoenix Online since my schedule at the time was hectic and I couldn't exactly fit into a brick and mortar classroom, so I chose the online route. Along the way I published numerous articles about business and IT in general.

Currently I am trying to retool my career into more of a Data Science, AI, and Machine Learning and Blockchain role. I've achieved a LinkedIn Learning Badge in "Fundamentals of AI and Machine Learning" and have taken the first 4 courses in the "IBM Data Science Professional Certification". In addition to LinkedIn Learning and Coursera, I've taken classes on Amazon and company sponsored classes in Machine Learning and Blockchain.

I currently reside in Fort Worth, Texas with my lovely wife who is a multimedia artist. When I'm not working or studying, I play drums in our church band and I'm totally into weightlifting and bodybuilding.

Between my wife and I we have 4 kids and 5 grandkids.

Hi Folks,

I am a new member just joined the Coursera community today.

I am from Sydney Australia, and I have been a professional accountant in the last 20 years, and a university lecturer in accounting in the last 15 years. I am a "young man" with many years' life and commercial world experiences.

In the last many years, AI have developed substantially. As an outsider who never learn computer programming before, I did not want to just watch how good AI is, I am keen to participate and try to learn the rope to use AI to change the world or change myself!

I am eager to learn from the top dog in the trade, and happy to share ideas with the people who are in the community.

Hy everyone,

My name is Zaynab, I am currently an undergraduate student of physiology here in Nigeria. I am new to coursera, I just got to know about it from a friend some months ago. I'm currently enrolled for a course on Digital marketing via financial aid. The course does not start until next week. What push me to actually pursue a course in that field was the need to know how the various areas of digital marketing can help a business grow. And since we are in a world where every business require marketing.
I'm hoping on still taking courses on content creation, business behavior and personal development. I love traveling and taking photographs of my view. Although, I've not get to do much of that. Volunteering is a thing of happiness to me, so I'm still looking for several platforms where I can play more role in humanity. I enjoy playing games, meeting new people from various spheres of life and learning new things. I hope to learn a language too some day.

Regards,
Zaynab.

Hi everyone,

I am Ekwoge Blaise from Cameroon, situated in Central Africa. I was linked to taking courses with Coursera through a friend around May this year. Ever since, this has been one of my main point of interest as I seek to gain as much knowledge as possible through this medium given the instability in my country.

I am currently taking courses aligned in 3 main domain: Data Science[Like the IBM professional Specialisation where I just completed the 4th course], Full Stack Development, Leadership and Music. Handling data in all its form with python and AI is something I have always desired doing and to be based someday as a Data Scientist; though the whole concept of Data Science and Data Analysis is not yet established or has jobs related to this. As such, I engaged myself with Web development since most projects around always has to do with this.
I equally take leadership courses to help build myself as an individual and to be able to help others around me as this is something that brings much joy and content to my heart. Have always been involved in activities that warrant me to stand as a leader, so learning to harness proper leadership skills is what i think would help push me pass my limits/comfort and reach out more to even more people.
I equally take some courses in music because music brings my body and soul together. Before, I took music as just a hobby, but right now it is something I am passionate about. Lately I was assigned in my church to start and build a choir, but I had very little or no knowledge in Music. As such I sort for an opportunity where I would be able to learn. And I have this dream of taking music in the church in Cameroon a bit further than has always been, but for this, I need to know more.
Apart from Music I am interested in football, in surfing the net for recent technologies and occurrences out of space.

I am really happy and excited to be here where I believe I would learn from others and equally help others the best I can. Grateful to @Claire and her team for this opportunity.

Thanks,
Ekwoge
