My Journey through the AI GHANA Mentorship Program

  I was browsing LinkedIn one day when I saw a post by AI Ghana looking for individuals to mentor in data science, machine learning, and artificial intelligence. I tried my luck by applying, and in a few days I was invited for an interview to learn more about me. After the interview, in a few weeks I was accepted into the mentorship program out of a large number of applicants.  To add to that, I was very happy that day that I received an email that I had been accepted into the mentorship program. Since I am an artificial intelligence (AI) enthusiast and I didn't know where to start, this was a great opportunity for me to start my journey in the field. Besides, I am a geomatic engineering student, and I want to be a geospatial developer or geospatial data analyst in the future. Being in this mentorship is a step torward becoming who I want to be. Finally, my mentor, Godliver Alangyam, introduced me to the Python programming language, in which she taught me how to use some data scien
