Hello my name is Harmeet Bharya
I was born and raised in the London Borough of Redbridge where I lived with my parents and sister.
I completed my degree in BSc Computer Science during a challenging time when my father passed on. I went on to become aJunior Web Developer at the University of Hertfordshire where I graduated.
Soon after, I married Mr Right, accepted a new job offer at Book Depository as Web Developer, became pregnant and bought ahouse; all within nine months. After the birth of my daughter, I suffered with severe postnatal depression and anxiety for two years. After maternity leave, I returned to work and I was offered the opportunity to train as a project manager when Book Depository became a subsidiary of Amazon. I loved my project management role and thoroughly enjoyed being a part of the Amazon family. I took the decision to leave after five years of employment when I sadly miscarried an early twin pregnancy. Thereafter, I suffered more heartache and severe anxiety that was debilitating; I was unable to leave my home some days and was too scared to drive. My thoughts became morbid, and I started thinking of ways to end my life to escape the misery.
However, with the help of professional and holistic therapies, I am alive and well today to tell the story. I’m currently living in the county of Berkshire with my amazing husband and beautiful daughter. I began working for my husband’s business, Langhams Estate Agents, as Accounts Manager over two years ago.
I have been writing Poetry since the age of sixteen and the inspiration stems from a timeline of sorrow, from some very ugly experiences since the age of eleven, to illness and the loss of loved ones, heartbreak, secondary infertility and miscarriage, anxiety and depression. Whilst on the road to recovery, I discovered interior design and undertook further education in this field over a year ago, exploring avenues to start a business. Unfortunately, I miscarried again after a further two years of trying for a second child. In the midst of my spiritual healing, I revisited all the poetry I had been writing over the years, and began writing more each day. I haven’t been able to put my pen down since this turning point, and have finally birthed a poetry book called Poetic Secrets. I would best describe myself as a God-fearing soul, and my other hobbies include mindfulness, meditation and interior design.
