I’m Sydnee! I’m a Houston Cougar born in Dallas, Texas. I’m the second oldest of six children.

I graduated from U of H with a bachelor’s in Journalism and a minor in Business Foundations. I’m a hooper. I’ve played basketball for most of my life up until college (oh how I wish I could have played in college). In saying that, I’m a big sports fan! My favorite basketball team is the Boston Celtics, and my favorite football team is the Green Bay Packers (I just noticed they’re both green teams, which is my favorite color)  

I’m a creative and have been my whole life. The things I enjoy most are hanging out with my family and friends and getting dressed up and going out. I love fun simply put and believe you can have that just about anywhere.

Let’s have fun guys!
