NATALIE HISSEY, of Eastwood is this week’s TWT Miss Eastwood Granny Smith  Festival Queen Quest entrant.

Natalie lists her hobbies and interests as swimming/fitness, chess, travelling, cooking and learning new languages.

Why I would like to be TWT Granny Smith Festival Queen: Like many people who come to Ryde I have chosen to live here as I have great admiration for the community spirit of this area and I would like to increase my participation by giving  back to our community.

As a local resident studying law and Chinese Mandarin at Macquarie University I appreciate the diversity that unites Ryde.

My studies have enabled me to better understand the many cultural aspects of our community and I want to be more involved on celebrating and appreciating our cultural diversity.

If I am fortunate enough to win the Eastwood Granny Smith Queen, I intend to represent and engage the interests of the young people and many cultural communities and use my voice to promote Ryde as far and wide as I can – through our local paper, our sporting teams, our thriving arts culture, and our small businesses.

We have so much to offer!
