Ellen Jacobsen from HoMie
After a long stint as a directionless traveller, studying Philosophy at Uni helped to solidify that whatever work I ended up doing - I wanted to do good. I am now the Social Impact Manager at HoMie - a social enterprise streetwear label in Melbourne that was started by a few mates. We exist to make a positive difference to the lives of young people experiencing homelessness and hardship, by contributing meaningfully to their journey to self sufficiency. Our mission is to to build confidence and job skills for young people and create unique pathways out of homelessness. It's an incredible job to be able to develop and grow our programs alongside our epic team, our partner organisations and of course the young legends who I learn so much from. I am lucky to be able to contribute to HoMie creatively as our fashion campaign stylist, which I love. I am passionate about contributing to social equality and inspiring young people to care about their communities.
