Harry had begun his initiaves and movement into the coding world whilst also studying for his leaving cert.
He had previously penned a letter addressed to the Irish government regarding the structure of the leaving cert, and how it can benefit some students but also inhibit the potential of others. This letter he penned was aimed at how the leaving cert can be a disadvantage to students, who are better in class but fail to perform on the day. His letter was met with widespread support, and ended with him being brought onto numerous talk shows around the Kildare/Dublin region to talk about his proposal to change the structure of the traditional leaving certificate exams.
In October of 2016, Harry received an email, asking him to perform a TedTalk in Vilnius, Lithuania. A date was set, but Harry couldn’t attend due to commitments, and his love for Liverpool, to see his side play in Anfield. A new date was set and Harry travelled to Lithuania in January 2017, for what was as he described, the “scariest experience of his life”, and talked in front of hundreds of people about the importance of STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths). Although he recounts it as one of the more stressful times in his life, trying to learn a long speech off by heart, especially presenting the speech in a non English speaking country. Harry describes it as an honour to be chosen to speak at an event that is so recognized worldwide, and has such a huge reputation.
