My interests / pets:

I’m Sydney, a Sophomore at UMW. I plan on majoring in Psychology to become a counselor. I have 4 pets that I always miss when I am away on campus. As for my interests, I really like to listen to music, hang out with my dogs, and I am pretty decent at building houses on The Sims 4.


Something that I really enjoy is working with animals, and a few years ago I got to volunteer at an animal shelter. I don’t get to do this as much as I would like due to COVID and being in college, but it was something that I enjoyed and wish I could do again.


During my Senior year of high school, I took an AP Psych class and it stuck out to me as my favorite class that year. Ever since then, I have felt like Psych is what I need to major in and eventually have a job in. I know many people, including myself, that have struggled with mental health issues. This is difficult for me to see and I naturally want to help individuals struggling with these issues. This is how I decided that I want to become a counselor!
