Tydeah's Story

My passion is nursing.
I discovered my passion for nursing when I watched my older cousin give birth two years ago. Witnessing that made me really want to be a nurse because of how efficient and interesting their work was. I like to see the happiness of the mother’s face when the baby is finally here, and telling them that everything will be alright. I would also like to be the person to tell when she's having contractions, when she's dilated and other important things that happen when a woman is in labor.

Attending UConn Pre-College Summer Program would really help me figure out if this is the path that I want to enter and continue in the future. I would enjoy learning more about this field, as well as being able to experience the medical field first hand. I am also really excited about being able to stay in a dorm during my program, as well as being on a college campus.

A Note from Mrs. DeBernardo, Tydeah's Teacher

By attending UConn Pre-College Summer Program, Tydeah will return next school year with a new perspective on life. I am so excited to see the transformation. I can see great potential in this student. I want to see that she gets every possible positive opportunity to grow her greatness!!

UConn summer program

I’m at very excited to go to my UCONN pre-summer program . This is literally the only thing I think about every single day . I am going to feel like a real college student and be able to really experience something different . Being nervous is something that I will probably have untill I get there , but for the most part and I can really say this is going to be the best experience through high school .
