Despite being born and raised in the cold city of Chicago, the warm beaches and ocean have always called Sydnei’s name. Now a sophomore studying graphic design at the University of Miami, Sydnei spends as much time as she can in the sun and near the water, diving year round. During the school year, she teaches scuba classes at a local dive shop and goes out for fun dives when she has the time. She is a longtime alumnus of ActionQuest, starting in 2015. This will be her fifth summer back in the beautiful BVI. Out of the water, she enjoys reading, along with playing tennis and badminton.
