I had the honor of connecting with Sydney on Facebook recently, and I admire her for her positivity, keen learning and emotive and emotional writing through her poetry and wise words that all people should read/hear/experience. She has presented speeches, written a book of poetry entitled “The Purple Tree – And Other Poems” with a Foreword By Donna Williams in 2010 and also a film “My Name is Sydney”.
She values her personhood she wants to recognised for being “Syndey” and all which that entails, she gives a reflective and empowering message that all forms of communication are valid and that everyone has the right to be listened too.
Thank for sharing your words with the world Sydney people are listening and people are empowering. 🙂
