Sydney Smith is Ascension Episcopal Soccer's leading scorer and a starter on the Blue Gators basketball team. 

It's not uncommon for her to play both games in both sports on the same night. 

The role of an athlete, however, is just one of the many things that make up Sydney Smith's life.  She's also a business owner, creating jewelry for the company she started last year --The Tangled Jewel

"This is some jewelry I made in independent study class. I've made a lot of birthday presents and they've really, it's been exciting because you can make it more personal. And that's been really fun," says Sydney 

Sydney's mother Kellie is a big supporter of her daughter's endeavors. Kellie has always noticed her daughter's quiet confidence in sports, but she still marvels at how balanced her daughter is outside of them. 

"She's someone else's child probably. I always say I want to be her when I grow up. She just does a great job of balancing life," Smith said of her daughter.

AES recently held its senior night for the girl's basketball team. Sydney, her mom, and dad walked out on the court together, balanced and ready to take on whatever challenges lie ahead.
