• About Sidney Rodriguez

    Senior, Sidney Rodriguez was born in Boston, with family from Georgia. As this is her first year in Blue and Gold but last year at Malden High, she is looking forward to experiencing the journalism process because she has never experienced the work put into making the newspaper before. She enjoys going out to different restaurants that she’s never been to, as well as watching and participating performing arts such as dance. Due to her love of dance she has done the school’s annual Dancing with the Teachers every year since entering high school and is looking forward to doing it again this year. When she’s not dancing, she likes watching Queen of the South, and the Harry Potter series, as well as listening to Lauryn Hill who she appreciates for her deep lyrics. She describes herself as outgoing, easygoing and likes being around people. She’s most proud of her accomplishments in the Junior Varieties Show because she had to balance multiple classes on top of hours of practice.
