The mentorship and access to BAFTA events will be invaluable in helping me build my career
Helen grew up on a farm in rural South Wales. After spending a year in Berlin working as an au pair and volunteering for the Social Democratic Party, she studied Anthropology and Human Rights at Yale University, graduating in 2018. While at Yale, Helen was involved in anti-sexual assault activism, creating and delivering an anti-sexual assault workshop curriculum that is now used at several universities, and regularly providing expert advice and analysis for state policymakers and national news publications. As a result of this work, she was selected as a finalist for the ‘College Woman of the Year’ award in 2016. She also conducted foundational research into the introduction of co-education at Yale, which formed the basis for a yearlong exhibition in Sterling Memorial Library that was visited by over 80,000 people. Helen then undertook an MPhil in Criminology at the University of Cambridge, graduating with distinction in 2019.
Helen said: "I am thrilled and honoured to have been awarded a BAFTA scholarship. The mentorship and access to BAFTA events will be invaluable in helping me build my career, and I cannot wait to learn from both my fellow scholars and the alumni network of such a prestigious scholarship. I am so grateful to BAFTA and Tinopolis for this opportunity."
