Two of Wagga's brightest young stars have been named finalists in the NSW Women of the Year Awards, in recognition of their passionate work for the community.
Karin Rezkalla has been nominated for her creation of Phenomewomen, an online community for young women across the world to share ideas.
The Riverina Anglican College student said she was honoured to be named a finalist and to have her efforts recognised.
"I'm very excited and looking forward to meeting all the other finalists and learning from them," she said.
Karin was nominated for the 2022 'One to Watch' award, which recognises girls and young women aged seven to 17 who demonstrate a single act or ongoing acts of courage, strength, determination and kindness to help and support others.
