Ayslin Dziedzic '25 Sings at Conference
Singing is part of who Wilbraham & Monson Academy’s Ayslin Dziedzic ’25 is.
Helping others in need is part of who she is as well.
Ayslin sang at the 4th Central Mass. Lyme Conference at the Sturbridge Host Hotel & Conference Center Nov. 16. The event, hosted by the Central Massachusetts Lyme Foundation, brought awareness and educated people on the risks of Lyme Disease and vector-borne diseases.
Ayslin, who performs with the Dan Kane Singers, sang “Hero” and “Faith of the Heart.” After learning her mom had been diagnosed with Lyme Disease, she sang at the 2017 conference. She’s also performed at the Soldiers’ Home in Holyoke, the Rays of Hope Walk in Springfield, local nursing homes and churches.
Ayslin on singing at the Lyme Disease Conference: “I did this last year, too. My mom was diagnosed with Lyme Disease in 2017. I wanted to do this because I saw my mom struggling, and so many people in Massachusetts and world have this. So many people were (at the conference). It was sad to see how many people go through this every day. I wanted to bring happiness to them. I know some of them were really sick; some were in wheelchairs. I wanted to do this for them.”
Ayslin on singing at charity events: “I’ve done a lot of benefit concerts. I’ve had two of my own. When I was 8 or 9 I did one for a close friend of mine, my aunt’s grandson. He had a type of cancer, but he’s well now and doesn’t have cancer anymore. I like to do them because it makes people happy. I also feel like people who are young (who see me perform), it might inspire other people to do things for other people.”
Ayslin on singing: “Singing is a big aspect of my life. Being able to share it with other people is a great thing and it’s something I enjoy. I like it because it’s like my second family. So many people in my singing family support me. I like being on stage and singing.”
