This is a lovely post, @Maryam, thanks for initiating this conversation. 

Like @Shmimy, Coursera, and Andrew Ng (co-founder of Coursera), my birthday is in April, too! :dizzy:

While I’ve always thought of myself as a lifelong learner, I actually began learning with Coursera when I joined Coursera as your community manager in 2018. 

After taking Learning How to Learn, I realized that while I like encountering new concepts and subjects, I’m not very good at retaining that information. That said, I probably do invest time in integrating knowledge that I really want/need to retain.

What has been most meaningful to me during my 2.5 years with Coursera is getting to hear all of YOUR stories. What a joy it is to learn from, connect with, and be inspired by our incredible Coursera learner community. I save encouraging quotes from this community so I can read them when I’m having a difficult day!

Happy Birthday, Coursera!  And many more to come following its successful IPO last week!  

My journey with it started with Giving 2.0 to help me sort out my wandering volunteering journey.  I am as happy as can be continuing with my learning journey, taking courses and participating in this community to gain a better understanding of people, culture, the world as it evolves and my own development.

To count my blessings, one course that I took several years ago, led to joining a WhatsApp group during this pandemic. This community has so many happy people around the world sharing their joys and wisdom, as well as compassionate support when a few runs into life’s challenges in this difficult time.

Another course that I took a few years ago led me to understand the wonder of our gut microbiome and gut brain axis!  With that fundamental, as an opportunity arose to participate in a BrainHealth project being done by UT, Dallas, I readily jump into it and learn to build habits to maintain a healthy brain, manage stress and decelerate the effect from aging.

I must curb myself from my excitement to share the beauty of Coursera, the professional and the engaged participants behind it.  The stories shared here is aspiring!

Happy Birthday to Coursera!:birthday:

Hello everyone and @Maryam 

I came across this amazing platform when I was struggling with my coursework on Bachelor of Computer Applications and was looking around for gaining clarity and insight about the same on the internet.

The first course was actually a part of the Google IT Support Specialization .

Hence, my interest grew further and I found my reliable source of knowledge through Coursera !

I really appreciate the vision and mission of the platform and is glad to be a part of it. 

Thank you for keeping my spirits high and being with all of us during such a transcendental time , for showing people worldwide that everything can be better if the light of education reaches every corner and can help make things right.

Happy Learning .

Stay safe.

Regards,

Saheli
