|Johannah leedham is one of her idols|
Coached by Matt Harber at Loughborough University, the 17-year-old will be moving to America to pursue her dream - after playing for Team GB at youth level in August.
Harriet has been speaking to us ahead of the Women's Eurobasket and while she just missed the cut this time, she will almost certainly be representing Great Britain in Olympics and Eurobasket in the near-future.
She said: 'The highlight of my year was receiving a call-up to the GB first team, we played against Greece and I scored two points in front of our home crowd - it was amazing.'
'At the moment I'm focusing on moving from Loughborough to America where I'm to play basketball, in the long term I'm hoping to represent Britain at the Olympics.'
'I'm working on staying in shape and developing my skills even further, I'm quite young and I have a long way to go.'
We also spoke to her coach at the university Matt Harber about how far he thinks Harriet can go, he said:
'I think Harriet is slightly raw at the moment, but she shows a lot of potential and it has been a privilege to see her develop.'
'She can go as far as she want's to go and play at the top level in Europe and hopefully become an important player for the GB national team.'
'If she want's to continue being hungry for the game, then she will be rewarded for that.'
