Why Sydney wants to be a voice for children fighting cancer:

I would be honored to be a voice for children fighting cancer because through their journey I can learn so much. I remember being at a dance competition and seeing an older girl practicing with a paper surgical mask then removing it to go “slay” with her team. She put it on again after the performance. I found out quickly that she had cancer and needed the mask for protection. I couldn’t believe it. I didn’t ask questions but just knowing that she had the determination to dance was amazing. We all have rough days. I can only hope to make other people smile.
