Debating

I am an experienced competitive debater in the British Parliamentary and World Schools formats and want to make debating more accessible through the Art of Debating Organization

NDT World Schools 2021 Grand Finals

Eton College vs Team Wales WSDC

Result: 7 – 0 Unanimous to Eton College

Bluebonnet World Schools 2020 Grand Finals

Eton College vs Team Romania WSDC

Result: 5 – 2 Split victory to Eton College

As a passionate debater with over 3 years of competitive experience and a summer full of opportunities ahead of me, I decided to use my skills to make a real social impact. I recognized the immense privilege I had as a student at a school that provided me opportunities to attend weekly workshops, participate in competitions, and receive professional training. Many students do not have the resources to access debating and often lack the information to pursue competitive debating even if they are interested. I believe debating can have an incredible impact for students, especially for those who come from disadvantaged backgrounds. It provides crucial public speaking and communication skills, as well as teamwork and leadership. Additionally, it can be a crucial addition to a student’s CV, allowing to access opportunities through university. It was the desire to overcome these boundaries that drove me to create the Art of Debating program last summer: A debating organization which seeks to introduce more students to debating and make the benefits of debating more accessible to students from underprivileged backgrounds.
