Spotlight on Alec - DMO Student of 3 Years!

In celebration of Debate Mate Virtual's 3rd birthday, we're spotlighting some of our longest running students on our blog! Read on to hear a contribution from Alec, aged 10...

Alec has been with Debate Mate for all 3 years that we've been up and running! In that time, he has participated in 11 of our courses, on topics covering everything from debating and Law, to technology and geography!

Here's what he has to say about his time at Debate Mate so far...

Hello, my name is Alec and I am 10. I am interested in PokémonTM as well
as my younger brother (who is too young to join Debate Mate). 

I have been attending Debate Mate for 3 years, starting off as something to do during the Covid-19 Pandemic. I particularly enjoy the 'Where Do You Stand' activity as it is interesting to see the opinions of others as well as your own. 

Debate Mate has taught me a lot about speaking out and standing up for others. It has helped me with my excellent drama club (Creation Theatre) and expressing my ideas in and out of school. 

I want to be a technical engineer when I grow up and use things like genetic engineering to turn animals into PokémonTM and I want to use the skills Debate Mate has taught me to help sell my products to people.

It has been an absolute pleasure to see Alec flourish in our weekly clubs and the whole Debate Mate team can't wait to see him continue to develop his impressive communication skills with us over future terms.

A massive thank you to Alec for writing this fantastic blog post for us!
