Hi Everyone,

I live in Auckland, New Zealand. I just enrolled in the IBM Data Science Professional Certificate Course.

It’s become necessary for me to obtain some sort of certification for my current data analytics skills and experience, to get ahead in my new profession of data analytics/data scientist/data engineer.

I’ll be honest to say that my hobbies all centre around coding and building stuff, I know it sounds boring, lol. I love riding bicycles though, if that helps :)

Hi community, 

My name is Norris Azumah a student at the UGMS( university of Ghana Medical School). I am a second clinical year student and I live in Ghana. I am very new to coursera, I just signed up to take the neuroscience course.

Schools are closed down in my country as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.  I decided to use the time wisely to build myself up , and I believe this community is going to help me achieve that. 

When I am not reading, I may be practicing on my acoustic guitar or watching a movie.

Hi all,

My name is Jide, a school vice principal and English language, literature and history teacher from Nigeria. I’ve completed quite a number of courses on Coursera, from as far back as 2013 at least, but this is the first time I’ve heard about this community. I think it is a really great idea.

My interests include general knowledge courses like basics of programming, big history, critical thinking and so on but most importantly, I am on the verge of completing Arizona State University’s TESOL certificate course.

I enjoy teaching, mentoring, researching, travelling, playing chess and (more recently) networking.

Pleased to meet you all.

Hello everyone, my name is Cher (for short, don't worry about the long version. You might as well bite your tongue. 😂 ) 

I'm Nigerian living in Nigeria. Here learning to play the guitar. The lessons so far has been exciting! 

I have this love for playing guitar but have never really pursued it. Coursera and the prevalent lockdown gave me an avenue to do so.

I'm interested in travel, have been to several exciting places in my country and part of the West coast. 

I look forward to the best Coursera has to offer. 

Thank you yafun yafun (in the Nigerian parlance)

Hello everyone.

I am Tushar Bhatt a final year B.Tech Mechanical Engineering student from India.

I am very passionate about aerospace and planes as I was selected to be a pilot in the Airforce but could not join because of a medical issue. Then I came across the word “Data Science” through my friend and here I am.

I have a little coding background as I have done C++ in 11 and 12 grade. I have also done Python and Java basic level courses during my Bachelor’s.

I have completed the IBM Data Science Specialization and Mathematics for Machine learning Specialization. 

As Data Science is the future, I really want to pursue this field and probably do MS.

 I am looking forward to developing skills in data science and machine learning using Python.

I want to start doing beginner-level projects (can someone help me with it please?).

My hobbies are playing PC games, Basketball and problem solving (Mathematics specifically).

My interests are Astronomy, Formula 1, and planes.

Nice to meet you all.

Really looking forward to learning something new from this community, sharing my knowledge, and become confident with my decision of pursuing Data Science.

 

Peaceout.
