Humans of Liberty: A Deep Dive Into a Senior

As graduation slowly gets closer, a specific senior shares some of his thoughts

Alijah Riles sits and has lunch with some fellow peers.

Alijah Riles is a senior and is a positive and optimistic person. He is funny, creative, confident, and so much more. I took a few minutes to get to know Riles better. 

Who/what is your biggest inspiration?

“My biggest inspiration is probably rather just like seeing all the stuff that people are able to achieve over the years. That itself is very inspirational to me.”

What is one piece of advice you live by?

“I guess I’d say never forget to prioritize.” 

What are your plans after graduation?

“I plan to get a day job in fast food or retail and then I’m going to college and pursuing my goal of playwriting. Acting and singing are also things I could do. Or even composing music, really anything with artistic expression is something I’m interested in.” 

What is your biggest struggle right now?

The term “senioritis” is a commonly used expression that most seniors deal with, and Riles is one of them. “I probably struggle most with motivation.”

When are you happiest?

“I’m the happiest when something I’ve been working on for a really long time finally comes together. It’s super rewarding.” 

Because of Riles’ bright and unique personality, it doesn’t go unnoticed by peers.

“He’s so sweet and is very funny,” senior Victoria Shelton said.

Getting to know people on a more personal level is good to do because everyone here at Liberty wants to feel cared for and feel like their voice is being heard. After only talking to him for a couple short minutes, you can tell he is a very radiant and bright person. Liberty has so many great students, and he is one of them.
