Sydney Shields

 “My name is Sydney Shields and I am from Waycross, Georgia, while my fiance Will is from London England! We met in August of 2015 during an interview on his twitch channel. We set up a skype meeting so he could tell me more about how the channel works, and we ended up not discussing that at any point. We talked upwards of 5 hours about our favorite movies and games, and we got to know each other quite fast. After weeks of long skype calls every night, Will asked me to be his girlfriend and I said yes! We had already discussed wanting to meet up in person, so Will booked his ticket to come meet me during our Christmas breaks. When we first saw each other in the airport, I knew immediately that he was the one. We continued to visit each other until I decided that being with Will was the most important thing to me, so I switched to all online classes and spent my second semester of college in England with Will in our first apartment together. Since then, Will has become a social media influencer and his twitch channel is a successful business. I am graduating in May 2020 with my degree in Communication from Columbus State University. We’ve moved to Toronto and have lived here for a year now. On New Year’s Eve, Will took me to Niagara Falls. At midnight, as the fireworks were erupting over the falls, he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. He had my ring custom made by an award winning jewelry designer here in Toronto and it is the most perfect ring I could’ve hoped for. It was one of the best nights of our lives! We’ve applied for a K1 fiance visa (Yes we have been contacted by TLC’s “90 Day Fiance,” and we said no haha) and are hoping to move back to Georgia by late summer. We cannot wait to celebrate our love with all of our friends and family who have watched us grow together these past 4 years!”
