St Clare’s Union

Founder & President

September 2018 - Present

As a regular at the Oxford Union debate chamber, I am often mesmerised by the eloquence and elegance of the individuals on stage. With 80% of our student body coming from non-English speaking countries, I felt it was even more important that we have a platform to practice articulating our thoughts, precisely and coherently.

I, therefore, founded the British Parliamentary style debate society to develop our members’ critical thinking and public speaking skills, as well as to expand their global views and social conscientiousness. In addition to setting motions and hosting debates every week, I also conduct brain-storming, reading and strategising sessions for our team of 18. One of my most memorable debates was This House rather be pretty than witty.
