Jacobs Social Entrepreneur Fellow

Hadiatou Barry

Hadiatou Barry, who graduated from Georgetown University, Washington DC, with a Bachelor of Science in Foreign Service says:
“I am proud and grateful to be part of the Jacobs Foundation legacy of expanding opportunities for youth across the world and nurturing ambition. I came to Berkeley Haas with the intention of leaving a social entrepreneur and the Foundation’s generosity has given me the courage to explore new ways to address education challenges in Africa and turn more dreams into reality.”

The 26-year-old fellow, born in Guinea, has nearly four years of experience in backstopping and managing transformative and inclusive economic growth projects in East and West Africa.
