Student & DM Alumnus
University of Aberdeen
Ellen started debating at 15 and within a year she and her team had progressed to the Debating Matters National Final as well as one or two other competitions. After making it to the Debating Matters National Final two years in a row, ties with the competition grew. Ellen is now a second year medical student at Aberdeen and through all of her experience she says she has learned that facts are the key to a well thought out and logical argument.
