Born on November 25, 1998, in Gresham, Oregon, Sydney lived there for four years before moving to the small bay area town of Rio Vista, before moving away with her mother. She currently lives in Tracy, CA with her mother and two pet cats. She thrives in drawing and art, reading whatever she can get her hands on, as well as having played sports as a child, including softball, basketball, and soccer.
