Sophomore Taliya James, staff writer of AHS journalism, joined journalism because she loves to write. James said, “The guidance counselor told me I’d be good at it.” Something James looks forward to in journalism is advancement, success, and having people see her work. Her favorite thing about journalism is the open environment that it represents. Her favorite project was the 400-word story, of which she wrote about the ACES test. She really enjoyed speaking about a topic that many students were unfamiliar on.

James has been involved in the fall play, spring musical, and cheerleading. Outside of school, James loves to dance--she is currently a dancer at Villa Dance. She also plays the ukulele. Something people may not know about James is she has a pet gecko named Carl. Also, she tried get onto the TV show, "The Voice."

James said she wants to be remembered around Atlantic High School as “a friendly face.” According to James, she doesn’t participate in many school activities because she is “quiet.” However, she wants people to know that if they needed someone to talk to, they could come to her.
