Haley Stephenson
You could say that junior Haley Stephenson is really in her element this year. Coming off a pretty busy summer of balancing work, friends and other responsibilities, she’s developed a sense of freedom and confidence.

“I feel like I really established a strong friend group, which is something that I’ve never really had,” she said.

Stephenson transferred from the North Kansas City school district as freshman, and took a chance on Newspaper without much intention of staying but she says she soon found it was the best first decision she’d had ever made here in Liberty.

She gradually became accustomed to Liberty, the staff and the students alike.

“People expect greatness from you here,” Stephenson said, “I think that teachers are more involved and education is more prioritized.”

Even throughout her transition to Liberty, Stephenson held tight to her love for fashion and regularly makes the conscious effort to dress well.

“What you wear, how you present yourself and how you look really does affect someone's first impression of you,” Stephenson said. “It’s really the freedom to express yourself.”

She always tries to go above and beyond in her first impressions by branching out and always trying new clothes and emerging styles.

Although Stephenson is not 100% sure on her career and college choices yet, she has really set herself up for personal greatness in the years to come.
