Sydney started out writing at a young age where her teachers started to take notice and praise her on her pieces. This encouraged her love of writing going into high school and helped her work on her natural ability. Throughout schooling many teachers encouraged her to submit work to young writing contests, and from those she always received encouraging remarks and helpful criticism which helped expand her ability as a writer. She also received educational rewards for her work that helped encourage her to pursue this path. Looking towards university she was also able to collect a few writing scholarships to help her start out her first year. Since leaving high school Sydney has been attending McMaster University and is in her second year of the English and Culture Studies program. Since starting in this program she has been introduced to multiple different stories and writing styles that she believes has largely opened up her perspective, and she hopes has helped guide her to be even better in her writing. However this is just the beginning.
