After university, Harriet who is popularly known as Hertilicious, had her national service at the Agricultural Development Bank (ADB) in 2019 with the hope that she would venture into banking.
However, life took another turn once again particularly because of the coronavirus pandemic that crippled many businesses in 2020.
"I found myself at home, carefully considering what my next line of action should be when a good friend of mine advised that I go into media because of my eloquence. I knew nothing about media. But on June 1, 2020, I took the chance and went to Empire FM," Hertilicious recalls.
According to Harriet, the journey was tough at the beginning as she had to learn the media craft from scratch right on the job, but with determination, she made it.
Currently, Harriet has become such a hotcake in the Western Region that any artiste who comes to Takoradi wants to get to her for an interview.
In less than seven months after venturing into media, she won the Emerging Radio/TV Personality of the Year Award at WRTP in 2020.
When asked about her secret and plans for the future, Hertilicious said:
I am always ready to learn. I never feel like I know enough. Currently, I see a lot great prospects for the future. I see myself growing into an amazing brand. I'm excited for the future".
