Coastal Twist founder is Women of the Year finalist

Umina's Ms Glitta Supernova has been named a finalist in 2020 NSW Women of the Year Awards.

Ms Supernova was announced as one of four finalists in the Community Hero of the Year Award by Minister for Women Ms Bronnie Taylor on January 20.

Ms Supernova was nominated for her work in activating the Peninsula's arts, culture and entertainment scene and championing sexual and gender diversity and visibility in the region through her registered not-for-profit arts and cultural organisation, The Naughty Noodle Fun Haus, as well as for co-founding the Coastal Twist Festival, which ran across the Peninsula in October last year.

"I am passionate about a balanced society where everyone's difference is embraced, valued and celebrated.

"The power of the arts can shape culture and shift perceptions, expand and change views," Ms Supernova said.

Ms Supernova said Coastal Twist promoted the Central Coast as a diverse community open for business to all people regardless of gender, sexuality, culture and ability, and saw large corporate organisations investing in the region for the first time, as well as amplifying local businesses, large and small.

"This has been one of the most challenging yet rewarding years of my life.

"I feel privileged to have been in a position to co-found a nationally recognised arts and culture charity which works directly in support of championing for visibility, equality and inclusion of all people.

"The response from the community, local council and business has been beyond everything I had hoped for."

Voting for the Community Hero of the Year Award opened on January 20 with the public able to vote on the four finalists until 11:59pm on February 14.

The winners will be announced at the Awards Ceremony on Thursday 5 March at Government house in Sydney.
