Debating has led me to participate in the Young Speakers Scotland competition where I could passionately express myself like never before. I’ve found myself becoming more confident in holding mature conversations with those decades older than me. I’m incredibly grateful for the opportunity to express myself in this way.” – Lila-Jane F (Arbroath Academy), winner of the Senior Public Speaking competition.
