Daughter. Student. Friend. Athlete.
My name is Sydney Van Dillen, and throughout my life I have become all of these things. I was born in Atlanta and currently live in Roswell, Georgia. I am a student at Lassiter High and spend my time either practicing sports or working out. I am on Lassiter’s cross country and track team and I love to run.
Growing up I would always hear about journalism because my dad is a meteorologist and works with many news reporters which makes him very familiar with that job field. Hearing about how much fun it is made me very curious about it, so I wanted to explore journalism when I grew older. I found a great opportunity to try it out and see what it’s about at the University of Georgia’s summer camp.
My dream is to become a sports reporter, but I know it will take a lot of hard work and learning to get to that point. I have my whole life ahead of me so who knows what could happen, but I think I have a pretty good idea of what I want to do for the rest of my life.
