The Sixth Former and Member of the UK Youth Parliament for Solihull has been voted by her peers across the region to speak from the dispatch box at the annual UKYP Debate on Friday, November 23.

The 17-year old will be meeting the Speaker, The Rt Hon John Bercow MP, before leading a debate on the motion of “A Curriculum for Life”.

BBC Parliament will be televising the event live and it will also be covered by ITV Central, other BBC channels and Channel 4.

Natasha said: “I feel thrilled and privileged to have been elected by young people from across the region to lead a debate in such an historic venue. I can’t wait for this debating opportunity of a lifetime.”

Solihull School, an independent day school for boys and girls aged 7-18, has an outstanding Europe-wide reputation for debating and is currently ranked the number one team in Central England by the Oxford Union.
