Hi My Name is Sarina,

I live in Scotland and come from Germany, my Father is S American and my Mother is German - I view myself as an international resident. I am passionately interested in Nutrition and how we can help ourselves stay healthy or become healthy - without always turning to pharmaceutical solutions.

I have signed up for this course:
Gut Check: Exploring Your Microbiome
to help improve my knowledge and to help me get back to focussing on my Nutrition studies.

I would be happy making network connections around the world or closer to home. I speak German and English well, some French and a tiny bit of Spanish. I have only recently got into the world of science - 3 years ago whilst working as an IT analyst I did evening classes to get some basics in biology , afterwhich I studied for a higher national certificate in applied sciences to give myself some all round basic science knowledge.

I have lots of interests besides nutrition, such as art, reading, online computer games being a few of them.
Good luck with whichever course you have chosen:-)
Sarina. Have you read Gut (the inside story) by Giulia Enders? I'm not doing your course but found it fascinating.

Hey All,

My name is Adam, from Syria and have been living in Lebanon about 10 years,
for a lot of reasons I had to leave School in young age,

I love computing, and you all do great with what you love,
I just graduated from a Coding boot-camp last year,

and preparing to register BSc in computer science, I hope to get more friend who will be taking the same program,

Thanks @Judith for the friendly nudge to make my way here to the new Community. Great to see both familiar and new names and faces!

The course I mentor is People Analytics with 3 Wharton Profs. Many of our Learners ask about courses in Data Sci and Stats, so I often refer them to other courses in these areas

I split my time between the UK (NE of London near Stansted) and Tucson, Arizona - the joys of airports and two very polarized countries. I'm unexpectedly in the UK for a while this winter as our cat is ill.
We are binge watching detective shows together 🙂

I'm part of a group here in the UK looking at the future of our/my field, executive coaching, particularly impact of tech. I love hearing about new apps and tools that can be used with or in lieu of coaching. Lots going on in this market. People Analytics has a good deal to contribute to coaching but isnt well connected to it yet

Always glad to get/give recommendations on fast workout music, cooking hacks and TV/movies from Spain and Latin America. Recent fav from Spain is La Peste, series 2 due out soon.

See you again soon!

Hi all,

I live in Toronto and was introduced to Coursera by a Professor when I was pursuing my Business Management. Since then I have worked couple of places for a few years now and had lost touch with Coursera. While browsing when I saw the opportunity to do something nice I quickly enrolled myself to the Beta Tester Community.
In my free time I like to do adventure sports, sometimes go to gym, network with people and finally love learning something new.
Would love to connect with the members on Linkedin, please mention that you belong to the coursera community while connecting.

Looking forward for an awesome 2019!

My first Coursera course was in 2012. I have now completed more than 100 online courses, most of them through Coursera. I am constantly fascinated by the range of topics available!

Science MOOCs, particularly biology and ecology are my favourites, but I enjoy many other subjects as well.

When I started my online learning journey I didn't expect to connect with people all around the world. I imagined myself sitting at the computer watching videos, taking notes, and answering exam questions. The course discussions were an unexpected bonus for me. They helped fill a social void that I didn't realize was there.

I have created a blog about online learning, and now have part-time work helping others discover the world of MOOCs.
Welcome, @Pat B. I just now visited your blog. It's wonderful and your list of completed courses is awesome. Thanks for sharing! 🙂

Hello! My name is Tiffany and I am an LPC in North Carolina. I've worked with addicted and mentally ill clients for over 20 years now and truly love what I do. I have a husband who travels for a living, which is challenging at times with fourteen year old (fifteen this month) twins (boy/girl) but we are a close knit family and they truly are my joy. My time with them, either all together or individually is one of my favorite "fill ups" in self-care.
I consider myself a "lifelong learner".....not necessarily in the way of continuously pursuing degrees, but in the sense that I am ever and always fascinated by the way we human beings think and behave and how we can learn to do both in healthier ways and in ways that can bring us more joy.
I've known about Positive Psychology for a very long time, but have never been immersed in it and find myself drawn to it right now.....I am a person who tends towards optimism and try to pass that on to my clients, but also to my family. When I saw this course, it just clicked that this was the right time for me to explore it further:)
