Uddingston and Bellshill

Dawn Allan
Candidate for Uddingston and Bellshill

I am the very proud mother of 3, married for 21 years and recently relocated from Madrid to Hamilton after 23 years in the Spanish capital.

Since graduating in Hispanic Studies from the University of Glasgow I have been involved in education, even teaching two Spanish presidents English. Having studied Social Policy too, I certainly had a lot to talk about in those classes.

Now a high school MFL teacher whose passions include reading, keeping fit, football (Real Madrid!), my Puli and, of course, politics.

Within politics I feel strongly about education; sustainability on the earth and in the sea; and a sustainable economy. As a very pragmatic person, I believe I can voice reason when there is a lack of it on these issues
