Hello, community!

We are very thrilled to welcome the community's latest set of volunteer instructors. These volunteers will be tasked with sharing their knowledge with interested community members in our bid to make AI and data science education and technology decentralized and accessible.

In this post, we introduce these people, what they love about the community, and why they decided to take up this role.

To be clear, they are not exactly "experts" yet in the fields of AI and data science, but if there is one thing about great communities, it is that they are willing to place their members in a position of growth and endless opportunities.

Get to know each of them below.

"What I like about the community: I'm always happy seeing people help others in the little way they can. But this community has not only helped newbies in a small way, but they also broke the scale with the way they handled their meetups from to enable AI lovers to find a path to thread. I've met so many groups but the consistency held by The Port Harcourt School of AI is something to cherish. Kudos guys!!"
