Student Spotlight: Kailyn (Kai) Picciano

Have you lived anywhere else but Franklin? If so, how is Franklin different?

I have. My freshman year, I moved from the coast of North Carolina to Franklin. The whole environment surrounding the school and the way people act is different.

Do you have any advice for incoming freshman?

Be ready for change, because the person you are today is not the person you will be when you leave.

What is your favorite memory from your time in band?

There’s too many to generalize them, but I’d have to say the friends I’ve made and the laughs we have shared.

What is the one thing you miss the most about elementary school?

The thing I miss most is NAP TIME.

What were you like in middle school?

In middle school, I was very sporty and yet I was also the kid that wore all black and listened to MCR and Panic! At the Disco, so I was a strange mix.

What do you want to be when you’re older and why?

I want to be a National Park Ranger. I want to be that because I want to save the environment and teach people how to keep our planet clean and healthy for generations to come.

If you were a tree, what kind of tree would you be and why?

I would want to be an Angel Oak tree because their branches spread every which way and they provide shade and homes for animals.

If you could choose any animal to be your permanent sidekick, what animal would it be?

I’d probably have to say a bear, because they are big enough I could ride it and scary and yet also fuzzy.

Would you rather have unlimited international first-class tickets or never have to pay for food at restaurants?

I’d have to say never pay for food at restaurants.

What fictional character do you wish you could meet?

Aang from Avatar: The Last Airbender.
