“Is That A Lion Outside My Tent?” Raised in North Vancouver, BC Sydney always found an outdoor adventure right outside her door. Thanks to her parents, Sydney inherited a love for the outdoors after being exposed to rock climbing, hiking, kayaking, snowshoeing, mountain biking and backcountry skiing. Knowing all these great sports opened up the doors for more adventure and, thankfully, Sydney has decided not to shy away from a single opportunity!
When she wasn’t playing in the backcountry of BC, she was travelling the world. As a young traveller, she found adventure while sailing tall ship in Australia, riding elephants in the jungles of Cambodia, canoeing in Vietnam, snorkeling in Honduras, kayaking with crocodiles in the remote Osa Peninsula of Costa Rica, and horseback riding in Cappadocia, Turkey. Traveling has shown Sydney that it’s not the destination itself but the warmth of the people and the untamed wilderness which makes travelling each country unique.
Over the years, she hasn’t lost her love for travel. In 2014, at the age of 12, Sydney travelled to Zambia and Botswana in Southern Africa with her parents. Nothing could prepare her for the raw beauty found right outside her tent.
