Harriet studied Anthropology and Sociology at Goldsmiths University. After graduating, she interned at Clear Village, a charity that helps communities reach their full potential by combining ideas, spaces and people. She was tasked with improving the lives of young people on the Regents Estate.
She has also worked at a comprehensive school in London and was exposed to the overt disadvantages so many children face, both inside and outside the classroom. This experience further cemented her desire to understand how entrepreneurship can affect wider social and economic tensions.
Immediately before joining Year Here she worked at tech startup Houzz in a leadership role. She gained invaluable experience in the commercial sector, helped grow a global business and developed an unexpected appreciation of home design!
