Sydney Bell has hosted 35 episodes.
Sydney as told by Breanna:
She’s a sparkle. Inside and out. Upon meeting her, she’s engaged, curious, and wants to learn who you are. Energetic, enigmatic, and exploratory. Her curious mind is full of ideas yet to be born and her honesty is refreshing. Her spirit is like a fluttering butterfly — mysterious whimsy, yet charismatic and comforting.
Syd is the creator, the idealist, the connector. Of all the things detailed in her 16personalities.com assessment as an ENFP, this best describes her: “Can’t I fly helicopters AND be an oceanographer who writes songs and cooks.” She’s one to explore whatever excites her. Get ready to be enraptured by everything she says.
Professionally, she works in development and is committed to providing more opportunities for students in higher education. Additionally, she pursues board positions and volunteer opportunities with the community organizations she supports and launched a young alumni leaders program. Next on the agenda? A Masters of Science in Human Resource Development. Now that’s a Queen!
Celebrity Spirit Queen
Tracee Ellis Ross — why? Tracee is FUNNY! She is a biracial Queen, and someone who helped me find my identity. Also, she doesn’t take herself too seriously — how can you not look up to one of two women who actually dressed the Rei Kawakubo/Commes de Garcons theme at the Met Ball in 2017?? She is a strong, vocal advocate for women’s empowerment, AND has impeccable, fun, loud style! She gives me life, and I look forward to her posts/words/next steps Every. Single. Day.
Breanna Banford has hosted 35 episodes.
Breanna as told by Sydney:
Simply put, Breanna is the friend everyone wants in their life, but doesn’t always deserve. She has been practicing this thing called Radical Honesty since before it was a business buzz phrase, and she always shows up — physically, emotionally, however you need her, she’s there.
She helps people expect more of themselves, and makes sure no one is throwing a pity party without some action items to do better at the end of it. Breanna genuinely cares about bringing out the best in people, and helping them unlock their potential.
Breanna is an executor, and knows nothing happens without a plan in place and great communication. She is a take-no-shit badass who hasn’t entertained the idea of a short-cut in her whole life.
Personally and professionally, Breanna supports the Rochester, NY, community through her love of all things local — especially those that fall into the food and drink category. Since finding the spark for public speaking, Breanna’s ready to hone her speaking skills, and take center stage in order to inspire, educate and encourage the next group of Queens who are ready to Make. Shit. Happen.
Celebrity Spirit Queen
Sophia Amoruso — why? Because she’s an unconventional, unexpected but empowering Queen. She’s been through ups and downs and been very honest about the challenges she’s faced in business and in relationships, how she’s picking herself up no matter what — not hiding, standing up for who she is. Plus, her Girl Boss site and podcast is my #1 lately. Never stop learning from other rockstar Queens, amirite?
