I am Sydney Stephens, I like to be called Syd most of the time. Something to know about me is that I am always moving around. I love to be active and participate in sports. Some sports that I participate in is lacrosse, cross country, track, skiing, snowboarding, and scuba diving. When I am not moving around I am probably at school or my home. I was born January 3rd, 2003. For nine months of the year I live in Michigan, for the other three I live fifteen miles outside of Philadelphia.
In school I think I am best at writing and art. Science has never been my favorite subject, I have also been really bad at it over the years. Math is another subject I am not very fond of. I have always liked being creative, and writing gives me an opportunity to do that. In my community I like to do community service. My favorite is going into elementary schools and helping the kids learn how to read and write better.
I know many people in my life that have a mental illness. Many of my friends have anxiety and/or depression. I remember in middle school I had a classmate that was always tired and she never had the energy to do anything. I can remember being frustrated with her because she would never participate in group discussion. I never knew that she was struggling with depression and social anxiety until we were friends later that year. I think that this is important to be because after that I have become more tolerant when dealing with people and working together.
