Syr is a proud believer in the power of summer camps to help people connect. She joyfully went to both day and sleep-away summer camps every summer from ages 7-12 where she adventured in the outdoors, created art, and forged lasting relationships with friends. At age 16 she continued her love for camps by becoming a camp counselor for Bard College sporting camps and community day camps.
Most recently, Syr journeyed to Italy where she taught English to local kids at summer schools. She is passionate about community and global service and has travelled to Thailand, Laos, Costa Rica, and Ghana on service-oriented trips.
Syr is a rising junior at Middlebury College where she is studying Political Science, American Studies, and Italian. In her free time, Syr likes to listen to music, write, run, travel the world, and get involved with local and global politics!
She feels most happy walking in nature, watching sunsets, laughing with friends, and playing with animals! Syr dreams of a world where every person sees their own unique greatness and aspires to use their greatness to spread peace and love in the world.
Syr is beyond excited to engage with every camper and together have a fun and meaningful summer!
