Elena Brook-Hart Rodriguez

2021/22 Fellow

Born and raised in Spain, Elena came to London to study for her MSc in Marketing and Brand Management. Throughout her professional career as an Advertising strategist, she has worked with national and international brands such as British Airways, Iberia, Eurostar, Tesco, BT, EE, Hive, and Nissan.

In early 2020 she joined a volunteering programme in Peru to help underprivileged communities set up their local businesses. With the Covid-19 pandemic happening shortly after, and although the volunteering organisation closed, she decided to stay and fund an ethical fashion brand to help women in rural communities in the Peruvian Andes reach economic independence and keep their traditions alive.

She now not only works with women but also helps Peruvian artisans and men in jail bring home a fair income.
