Giulia Barresi

UK Chapter Board Member

Italian born and bred, I am based in London, but half of my heart is in India. My background is in consumer insights and strategy, and I am part of the brand team at Virgin.

I first heard of the amazing work of Shanti Bhavan watching the documentary Daughters of Destiny. Like many, I was immediately struck by the impact the school has on its students through its innovative teaching model and the values it instills in the kids.

I’ve always had a passion for social impact and education, having previously done a lot of volunteering and mentoring work with students in Asia on international business and strategy.

I am beyond excited to contribute to the UK Chapter’s growth through outreach and donor engagement.
