Gezel Bardossi – Women of the Year Awards

Mr MARK COURE (Oatley)

—Speaker, I would like to recognise an absolutely sensational young superstar in our community, who recently was nominated as 'one to watch' at the 2024 NSW Women of the Year Awards. The NSW Woman of the Year Awards have recognised thousands of women across the state who have displayed exceptional skills, determination and passion. This year, there were a record number of nominations. Gezel is a high achiever from St Raphael's Catholic Primary School at South Hurstville and was recently a contestant on the Voice, finishing within the top six! She also is a professional actor and has had many roles in films, TV series and music videos. Gezel is also committed to her education and has a passion for STEM subjects, recently receiving a scholarship for St George Girls High School. I am so proud of high achievers like Gezel, who continue to demonstrate that our community is the best place to live, work and succeed. She has shown consistent effort and good character in every aspect of her life. Congratulations Gezel! I look forward to seeing what you achieve over the next few years.
