Hello everyone!
My name is Aseel! I'm a computer engineering student from Syria. I've heard about Coursera for quite some time and this is my first time as a translator on this site. I've watched so far few courses and they are all so amazing and helpful!
Since i'm passionate about languages i find this a great chance to help others to get better in Arabic and English.
I believe everyday is an opportunity to learn something new. Work assiduously and patience are the keys of success
The new community looks really good! Looking forward to being here more often!

Hello, my name is Sang Han. I'm in the vicinity of Seattle, Washington, USA. I'm studying Web technologies such as NodeJS/Anguar/Vue/React etc. I'm studying them because they interest me and also it's a way to exercise my brain (use it or lose it). My hobbies are a little bit Tai Chi, a little bit of standing meditation, PC/Video Games, Reading, cooking, a little bit of Yoga, Nap times, etc. Thanks for reading!

Hi, everyone in this wonderful community,

Though a bit late, I am here.

I have been mentoring one course , Intro to Psychology, for about 2 years. I used to be a mentor in two more courses , but it turned out to be overwhelming for my everyday schedule.
Coursera is my passion ,and I studied ( without a certificate) several courses, Buddhism, Soul Beliefs, Psychology via Movies, Mentoring, E-moderating, Astrobiology, De-Mystifying Mindfulness. It has been such a great experience! I am practicing the language ( am not a native) , gathering cultural and inter-cultural knowledge and somehow boosting my life and professional development, trying to be useful and competent in what I do.

I am now a private teacher after having worked as a secondary teacher for many years. Decided to quit the secure job and took up the direction of my free will. So far so good.

Happy to say : "See you soon" !

Hi everyone,

I am John, live in Denmark and I am half Phillipino/half Turkish though I have grown up here.

I have taken the first module in the Google IT Support Professional Certificate and want to complete all of them so I can work with IT.

Currently I am studying Positive Psychiatry and Mental Health which really helps me grow personally and I think that I will always work on becoming a better human since it is so easy to forget myself again and again and afterwards become sick.

This has been going on for many years now and I want to break this bad habit once and for all.

I am studying other courses also and it is important for me to constantly study so that I always will learn new things and never grow stale (and boring;)

My hobbies are making comics, videos and music and I meditate and walk daily and once a week take a good run also.

Remembering my health is so important since I have been sick for far too many years now.

I look forward to learning alot more and hopefully also meeting other Coursera learners.

My name is Henrique and I live in Brazil.

I am System Analyst of a large Oil and Gas Company (Petrobras S/A) and I already have some experience accumulated in this industrial branch, since I have been working for 34 years!

I'm fascinated by the AI ​​knowledge area, because I really like mathematics and statistics. When I'm studying AI I feel like I'm in University again ... and feeling so provides a great stimulus! Maybe because it makes me feel a litte bit younger...😉

My hobby? Table tennis and spanish guitar.

Hey! Lucky to find this space!

I am from China and currently live in Shanghai.
I love marketing, sales, traveling around.... and culture/civilization of human beings has always been a great interest to me!
Recently I am very curious about Israel, her people, education, history, etc. That's why I have been searching on Internet for information related. I have read some books about Israel and Mr. Yuval Harari's books are a lot of fun!

I am visiting Israel for a business/touring trip this year, hopefully late April and May. Wish to know this great country better~ and I expect to know many friends over there!

My Institute organizes a grand Forum on each September in China. We invite scholars, mentors, celebrities and independent lecturers from China and overseas, to exchange perspectives on Humanity/Future/Civilization/Culture in order to make life better for human beings. This year, I wish we invite more guests from Israel.

Last but not least, this course will definitely help me to know more about the great country, how lucky and happy I am! 😋

Hi everyone! My name is Titi, am new on coursera. I live in Lagos, Nigeria. I have registered for some courses: Human rights for societies, Child protection, Humanitarian response to conflicts & disaster courses, Gender & Sexuality, International Women health & human rights and Violence course. I got interested in all these courses to equip myself for the journey in Child protection to support my two schools here in Nigeria. One of the schools has been dedicated to support the community where it is located to ensure many children go to school in that community, especially for the poor and orphans who has no hope of going back to school due to the death of a parent or both or parents who could not afford to send their wards to a good school. In this journey, I have encouraged my old school mates in sponsoring some of these children to school, tagged "sponsor a child to school'' Since I could not do this alone. I have decided to set it up as an NGO which am putting finishing touches to at the moment. This is my own little way of giving back to my society.
Floated sport academics to occupy the children especially the boys in football. When they are not studying, they play football to occupy them completely in school. My own personal experience has been the supporting pillars to help these children in school. I got interested in courses that are similar to give me more knowledge, share ideas, read about what others are doing to have enough exposure in achieving the best in my chosen field.
My hobbies are: traveling, meeting people, sharing experience in similar field or situation, helping others, reading, watching movies, playing board games, adventure and dancing.
I'm Christian Tsieng from cameroon. I have been a mentor since 3 years . Nice to meet you all!
