Be your true self

January 21st, 2022

Growing up in the Comox Valley, Sydney Sunderland developed passions for soccer, art and playing guitar. Sydney also liked expressing herself in different ways, sometimes through short hair, fun colourful hair, long curly hair and many other styles. What was key was being her true self. At the age of eighteen, Sunderland wrote and illustrated I Am Everything In Between (Rebel Mountain $13.95), a picture book for ages 4 – 8 years that celebrates children and how they gender identify. As the book’s back blurb notes, “it’s okay to feel like a girl, it’s okay to feel like a boy, and it’s okay to feel like Everything In Between.” Sutherland graduated from Grade 12 in 2021, and moved to Kamloops in fall 2021 to begin post-secondary education at Thompson River University on a soccer scholarship. 9781989996065
