Sydney Morris on YouTube
Sydney created her self-titled YouTube channel on February 21, 2016, and posted the first video there a day later. Titled ‘Level 9 Beam Competition’, it has accumulated over 11 thousand views to date.
Almost all of her early videos are gymnastics related. On February 23, 2016, she shared a video titled ‘Don’t Do That’, which had a distinctively different tone than her other videos at the time. The 45-second-long video was her first attempt at vlogging. In the description box, she wrote, “After our helicopter ride I went into the cactus garden. Good idea?”
Initially, her channel was known as ‘Sydney the coral girl’. After she left 1st Class Gymnastics, she renamed the channel after her real name. However, that has not much altered the types of content she posts. She continues to post video clips of her gymnastics routines, Q&A videos, challenges, and vlogs. Recently, she has started sharing beauty vlogs and makeup tutorials.
Sydney created her vlogging channel on February 20, 2016. She posted her first video there, titled ‘Kelloggs Tour of Champions- In the Show’, on February 21, 2017. In the course of the next few months, her vlogs garnered considerable attention before she decided to stop vlogging altogether.
She shared her most recent video, titled ‘Quitting the Vlog!’ on July 16, 2018. It is the same video that she posted on her main channel under the title ‘No More Coral Girls’, in which she discussed her departure from 1st Class Gymnastics and joining First State Gymnastics. She also said that she would not post videos on her vlogging channel any longer, as she does not have time for that due to gymnastics training.
