Sydney Brett created Sydney's Smiles Inc. in December 2016, because she felt there needed to be more done to help stop children from being bullied. Sydney herself was a victim of bullying both physically and verbally, by not only her peers but teachers as well. Not wanting other children to feel as she did, she wanted to help other children take a stand against being bullied. Sydney's goal for this organization is to spread awareness about all different types of bullying and the negative effects it has on children.
Sydney attends High Point University, as a fashion merchandising major. Sydney has dyslexia and wants to remove the negative stereotypes of children living with invisible disabilities. She has not let having dyslexia get in the way of her hopes and dreams for the future.
Sydney enjoys community service, modeling, pageantry and traveling.
Sydney has been awarded:
The Presidential Volunteer Service Awards for 2014 through 2018.
