I acknowledge Bianca Stanghieri who is a rising star in the taekwondo community and an outstanding young woman. Bianca was also the College Captain at St Ursula's College Kingsgrove and I have no doubt that she will go on to be an inspiring leader of our community.
Bianca is Second Dan Black Belt and she has been an Assistant Instructor of the Elite Taekwondo Club in Kingsgrove since 2015. From such a young age, Bianca has aspired to achieve her personal best. She has always been there to help other students and she regularly volunteers on grading days. As College Captain, she led a team of 20 senior and 40 junior leaders and her mentorship was particularly important during the recent pandemic where she played a pivotal role in discussing online learning and social distancing.
Last year I had the opportunity to present her with a Youth Achievement Award as part of the St George Community Awards. These awards honour some of the many individuals who go above and beyond every day to make our community stronger.
Well done Bianca.
