Beddingfield High School- Kaitlyn Williford
WITN Class of 2022
I am Kaitlyn Williford. I was born in Wilson, North Carolina on October 16, 2003. My family and friends are what matter most to me. I will always put their needs before my own. I am engaged to a sweet and loving man. I have always loved science and when the pandemic hit it made me realize what my calling was. I wanted to help people so I have decided to be the person who makes vaccines and cures. I love reading, and listening to music, and am quite introverted but will talk plenty to the people I know and love.
