Sydney Grissom is now a senior. She is addicted to Netflix and procrastinates everything until the last minute because that’s when she does her best work. Waking up early is probably her least favorite thing to do in the entire world and alarms are never her friend. Being indecisive is her specialty; so asking her questions or to decide on anything is not a good idea. This is her second year on staff as a news reporter.
