Sydney Wilfong
I'm Sydney Wilfong, a junior at AAHS. I'm a part of the band as a tenor saxophone player. On the days I have time, I enjoy writing, reading, and watching movies with my family and friends. I would like to go to film school, perhaps the University of North Carolina School of the Arts or any other film school that is somewhat affordable. With or without film school though, my absolute dream would be to one day become a filmmaker and create the entertainment that films bring.
