NATASHA Stansfield, though seemingly slight and delicate, is not someone you would like to challenge in a dark alley.

The 18-year-old has a brown-two belt in karate and was a national champion when she was younger.

She stopped her martial arts training before high school but continued her athletic pursuits into soccer and was a state champion.

The Fijian-Indian teen, who graduated from Toolooa State High School last year, is now toying with the idea of joining the Queensland Police Service in a few years.

At the moment she is focusing on saving cash from her role as a housekeeper for a local hotel.

Music is a passion for Natasha.

Aussie hip-hop is her favourite and she said it brightens her day. "I love music, I listen to it all the time, it's my life," she said.

So does she sing?

"Along to songs yes, not professionally though," Natasha said.
