Tessa Jennett

2018 Fellow

Being of Scottish-Trinidadian descent, Tessa has always loved learning about the world’s cultures and interactions. Since graduating with a BSc in Geography from the University of Bristol, she has worked in various international development organisations: with India’s youth for Restless Development to the Strategy & Learning team at the International Institute for Environment & Development.

With a passion for challenge and effecting change, Tessa went freelance to explore different positive social impact projects & contexts. Most recently, she worked on launching the Leadership for Good initiative which develops courageous integrity within company culture; and Kiko Matthews’ 100TOGETHER campaign for a Transatlantic Solo Row world record attempt.

Tessa is an optimist, energised by connecting people and ideas. She is fascinated by the cultural melting pot of London and potential of its youth. Tessa is a keen trail runner (coach in training), festival go-er; enjoys outdoors adventures and loves a wild swim.
