Sylvia is a self described “delusional junior” who believes that she is still twelve and enjoys reading and music. Sylvia has a useless knowledge of trivia, whether that be of Polish history, church architecture or European geography. Along the scheme of useless knowledge, she also does ballroom dancing.
