In Pastoral Care Time, we were lucky to have Ruth Hatherley (1995) speak to us. Ruth is the founder and CEO of her very successful blockchain technology company, Money Catcha.

Ruth used to go to Santa Maria and was a boarder. Her life changed when her brother died in a fire. She was 19 and while writing his eulogy she had a realisation. She realised that life is a book. Each page is a new canvas, a new start to fix the mistakes you’ve made and to do things that set your heart on fire.

Ruth didn’t know what she wanted to do with her life, but she knew she wanted to fix a problem and make people’s lives easier. She also knew she didn’t want to go to university, she wanted to take an alternative pathway.

When Ruth began her start-up business she tried to sell her idea and program to 56 investors. Out of the 56, only four said yes. Those four made her the successful company she has today.

Ruth inspired us to do what we love and to create a future for ourselves that will ‘set out hearts on fire’. She told us to find something we will be passionate about every day.

Autumn Weston, Year 10
