I read Plato’s Republic and I was immediately fascinated by the ideas – realising that it had several similarities to many of the dystopian novels that I was reading at the time. This was the start of my interest in Philosophy, and the more I learned about it, the more I wanted to know. I have loved the freedom that the Philosophy course has offered, where we are encouraged to learn independently, and to explore ideas outside of the classroom. I have also been a member of the debating team at Godalming, been involved in local politics outside college, and have undertaken an EPQ (discussing whether it is possible to own property). These have helped to teach me skills: how to react
when put under pressure, how to work out what you want to say, and then how to find the best way of saying it.
