Speaker Head Shot

Stacie Sybersma

Stacie Sybersma received an invitation to her ten-year high school reunion on January 20th, 2017. After the initial shock of "what have I done with my life" passed, Stacie began to reflect on everything she accomplished over the past ten years, to which she was pleasantly surprised: She graduated with an Associate's Degree in Natural Science from UCCI in 2009, continuing her education and graduating with a Bachelors in Biology in 2012 and a Masters of Marine Management in 2015. In between, she completed numerous internships and side jobs, some are providing comical stories to colour this TEDx talk! She experienced heartbreak  and fell in love. She travelled, moved out of her parents' house, got her first "real job" and, most importantly she got a dog.

There were many hiccups along the way, and many lessons learned. But all in all the crazy ride was worth it as today Stacie has a self-described "dream job" as the Environment, Health and Safety Specialist at the Caribbean Utilities Company. In her spare time, Stacie hangs out with her rescued doggie, Missy.
