Currently a at Point Arena High School, Sidney has plans to continue writing and plans to help mentor the new poet laureate when they are chosen in January 2024.
Sidney loves spending time with her family, hiking with her dogs, playing volleyball and softball, and writing poetry! She published her first and only book (so far), Questions Asked in the Midst of Midnight, at 17!
Sidney says, “I hope those who choose to read this book find comfort in the blunt honesty, and poetic vocabulary depicting the events and things, we truly aren’t supposed to say or think! My book is filled with the life of a teenage girl, struggling and succeeding through the journey of growing up, and all the adventures within my first 17 years! I hope my book makes you laugh, gasp, cry, and maybe just maybe you find some solace and understanding, that you are not alone. I have filled this book with honesty, to help all those who feel as if their emotions are not enough or too much; so yes say all the things you aren’t supposed to say, I said!”
