Stories from the Coursera Community

“Before joining Coursera, I was unemployed, but an active volunteer for the Youth Parliament of Pakistan and Kashmir Orphans Relief Trust. A year after I joined Coursera and started learning new graphic design and photography skills, I’m employed, making a great living, and supporting my family. Thanks to all the certificates I obtained from completing courses, I got my first job as a lead Graphic Designer & Photographer for the Foundation for Arts, Culture & Education (F.A.C.E) in Pakistan. On the personal development side of things, my confidence has also increased significantly.”
