Hello everyone! My name is Syd. I'm a third year resident assistant, a member of the women's golf team, president of our gender and sexual minorities support group, and a senior at Siena Heights University! I love getting to meet new people, making friends and embracing diversity. On top of those, I am also an intern for our Student Engagement Department on campus. I'm from Royal Oak, Michigan where I played soccer, golf and basketball all throughout high school. I have one little sister with whom I'm very close, and she is studying at massology school.
At Siena Heights, I played one year of basketball, and then began a new path as I cofounded Pride, our gender and sexual minorities support group on campus, and became a Resident Assistant. This is my third year being a Resident Assistant and it is the best thing that ever happened to me. Becoming an RA allowed me to step outside my comfort zone and meet strong, diverse and courageous people who helped me in my search for identity and self-growth. Some things I value are humility, honesty, and optimism. I believe in being grateful for every opportunity, and loving every moment of life. Too often we take our small victories for granted and it's important for us to realize how blessed we truly are.
