Looking for help from the OpenAI Community

Hello OpenAI Community,

I’m Mykhailo Bairaka, reaching out from Kyiv, Ukraine—a place where the current situation has profoundly affected daily life and the pursuit of professional goals. Amidst these challenges, I continue to focus on my passion for AI and its potential for transformative impact, which has led me to pursue a Master of Global Management at ASU and develop a startup based on GPT-3.5.

My journey has been anything but ordinary. The ongoing conflict in Ukraine has not only shaped my perspective on technology’s role in society but also placed me in a unique position where advancing my career remotely has become not just a preference, but a necessity.

I submitted my startup to Converge 2, hopeful for an opportunity to showcase our work and make a difference. Regardless of the outcome, I am reaching out to this community for advice, connections, and any potential remote opportunities at OpenAI. My experience in entrepreneurship, combined with a deep commitment to AI, drives me to seek ways to contribute to a future where technology enhances human potential and well-being.

I understand the power of community support and am reaching out to ask for guidance, insights, or introductions that could help me navigate these uncertain times. If you have advice on approaching OpenAI for remote roles or can share my story with someone who can, I would be profoundly grateful.

Thank you for taking the time to read my post. I am eager to learn from this community and to find ways to contribute to our shared goals in AI, even from afar.
