When Limari became a mother, she knew she needed to rethink her career so that she could spend time with her son. She began working from home as a social media manager, and soon recognized that an in-depth understanding of content strategy could help her take control of her professional future. On a friend’s recommendation, she joined Coursera, where she discovered Northwestern University’s Content Strategy for Professionals course.
“That course changed my life,” Limari says. “It gave me the knowledge I needed to pursue other opportunities.” When she became a single mother and needed to set her own schedule, she knew she had the skills to strike out on her own as a freelancer. Now, she works from her favorite coffee shop, and arranges professional commitments around her son’s school activities. “I have all of this,” she says, “because of Coursera.”
