September WiCSter of the Month

Sydney Walker

Please meet our September WiCSter of the month, Sydney Walker!

Sydney is a sophomore majoring in computer science and mathematics with a master’s in mathematics education. With these degrees, Sydney plans to become a high school computer science teacher to inspire young women to pursue STEM careers. Sydney’s passion for introducing others to STEM led her to become a mentor for the MERIT Scholars Program that was created to increase the retention of women in the Stony Brook CS Department. Sydney is also a TA for CSE 220, the lead programming mentor for Ward Melville High School’s robotics team, and an instructor for the STEP Introduction to Python course that is designed to introduce underprivileged and underrepresented minorities to STEM. In addition, Sydney is a mentor for the University Scholars PALS program, runs her own mask business to help keep our campus safe, and is an RA in Wagner College. When she’s not volunteering her time, Sydney enjoys rock climbing, reading, yoga, and hanging out with her friends.
