Sydney attends the University of the West Indies and is currently pursuing a Bachelor of Laws Degree. As someone who loves to travel and experience new cultures, Sydney decided to attend university in Jamaica, although she is originally from Guyana- a small but beautiful and diverse country in South America. Growing up in Guyana, Sydney witnessed so many people being denied the help that they needed simply because of their circumstances. As such, helping others has always been a huge part of Sydney’s life; whether that was by raising funds to help survivors of the 2010 Haitian Earthquake, or organizing weekly food campaigns for the homeless people in her community. Now, with the Education Equity Foundation, Sydney hopes to make a difference in rural communities in Jamaica by providing students with the tools they need to compete their education.
