VOLUME THREE AVAILABLE NOW

Sydney Scanlon is on a gap year before college in India with Global Citizen Year. Originally from Coral Gables, Florida, Sydney is a considerate thinker who mulls over the metaphysics of existence while reading Waiting for Godot and loves dancing to the beat at the local drum circle. She is a political activist who volunteers at music festivals to register voters. She is a part-time gelato scooper who investigates the economic logistics that will facilitate building additions to a church of mostly illegal immigrants on Calle Ocho and also negotiates the morass of legalities necessary for the permits. She is a sibling of five who goes from volleyball practice, to soccer practice, to yoga, to a game of pick up with neighbours in the street. She believes that informed, moral choices with the greater good in mind can shape a promising future. She wants to be part of that future. She intends to whole heartedly dive into India’s culture to begin to grasp its intricacies. Sydney will begin her Freshman Year at Amherst College in September. www.globalcitizenyear.org
