Sydney enjoys deepening her relationship with her faith and discovering truth. Researching with Fiona Givens has made her alive to a dimension of the nature of God and worship that is new and exciting. She has found a plethora of opportunities to integrate her academic endeavors as a philosophy major with the ideas and projects she is part of at the Institute.  Her faith and intellect continue to blossom as she tries to live the mission of the Maxwell Institute and become a disciple-scholar to contribute in the fortification of her faith community.
