Student & DM Alumnus
University of Newcastle
Sam’s first foray into Debating Matters was in the 2012/13 International Finals, where her team were successful against their Indian competitors. Since then, Sam has competed in the 2013/14 and 2014/15 competitions for Withington Girls’ School, reaching the National Finals in the latter and receiving the Best Individual award. She now attends Newcastle University where she studies Linguistics with French. In her spare time, Sam enjoys asking people if they’ve watched Breaking Bad (you haven’t?!), hip hop music and perfecting her seven-step haircare routine.
