In her own words
Sydney would love to meet Carrie Underwood. She believes Carrie has stayed true to herself despite her fame.
Sydney once swam across the alligator-infested Santa Fe River. It was the craziest thing she has ever done!
Sydney is a self-proclaimed "Belieber" and often tweets to Justin Bieber hoping he will reply.
