Katelyn Watts - Kentucky Interview by Michelle Sicard Nomination and Photography by Jennifer Dunn Photography Featured in Issue 16 of Inspiring Teens Magazine
The Nomination: Katelyn is super sweet! She loves her family and really loves her dogs! She has a great sense of humor and a big heart! I've really enjoyed getting to know Katelyn this year!
Tell me about the most amazing experience or memory you have had with your family. The most amazing times I’ve had with my family is the time I get to spend with every one of them at our family camp. We call it “Anna’s Acres” after my great grandmother who had passed away at Nolin Lake. We all get to spend time with each other boating, swimming, and at the end of the day preparing dinner together! It’s truly a fun bonding experience.
What are some of your favorite hobbies or things to do in your free time? In my free time I love to spend time with my friends or family, I really love to shop, and this may be odd, but I do love driving through parks every now and then.
As an inspiration for those around you, what advice would you give to other teens looking to pursue their dreams and find their true passions? Just go for it! You never know the outcome of something new if you don’t try it - so why not! If you push yourself to try something new you can have fun with it!

Tell me about a time where you experienced a leadership opportunity. I have always been close with my younger cousin because family is really important to me, so while she was going through hard times I stepped up to help her in every way I could even when nobody else had believed in her.
How many dogs do you have and why do you think it is important for people to have a "furry best friend" in their lives? I have two dogs currently & would love more! I can’t stress enough how important it is to have a furry best friend. My pups are there for me when I am at a low. I truly believe dogs know when there is something wrong and when you need some love. Dogs mean the world to me & I know I couldn’t live without my happy furry best friends. Dog kisses are the best kisses.
What do you plan on doing after high school? After high school I plan on attending college for my business degree & after that I would love to attend a cosmetology school so I could open a beauty business in the future!
