The very first meet-up in Ghana was held on the 6th of January 2017. I was invited by @tj4real to make a presentation. this is my first international assignment as a steem ambassador. I traveled from Nigeria to Ghana alongside the STACH crew which consisted of @ejemai, @fisteganos, @gee1, @ewuoso, @ibukun, and @adejoke16. We went to Ghana to support the growth of the Ghanaian community and motivate them.
People pay attention when they see something spectacular. A trip to Ghana by the STACH crew is a perfect way to create visibility and get people's attention. This is a proven fact because my inbox is flooded with the private messages, people are asking me I was able to travel out of the country by just blogging on steemit. In Nigeria, to some people, traveling abroad is a big deal.
The Meet-up had in attendance close to 40 persons ranging from young and enthusiastic entrepreneurs to the oldest Steemit User in Africa(@tj4real's father).
The main events for the meet-up were lectures by notable steemians and a quiz section where gifts(steem branded shirts) were given to newbies who were in attendance.
The target audience for my online promotion was facebook.

The result of this meet-up and online promotion is a increased demand and visibility for steemit. If you check the comments on the post links shared below, you will see people asking how they can register and be a steemit member. Some users who have registered but have not started blogging actively have being inspired to remove the dust from their blog shelves. A lot of people have signed up to Steemit as a result of this meet-up.
My private chat is flooded with messages from people asking me how to get started on steeemit, I have recieved some invitations to make presentation in Delta State, Enugu and other places. I have also recieved an invitation from a publishing firm that manages social media accounts for social media influencers. Due to promotional events like these, more and more celebrities and socilamedia influencers are attracted to the steem blockchain and this will lead to a viral adoption of steem.

This is the report of my contributionto the steem blockchain and the growth of the steem community in Ghana. Steemit has given me the opportinity of travel and educate and empower people with my skills aand knowledge. I'm grateful for this opportunity to be a blessing to people. As a steem ambassador, I'm set for more international trips and promotional activities offline and online.
Thank you very much.
