Anna Pellegrino is a junior writer who enjoys dancing and going out with her friends. When she’s not at Mock Trial practice, you can catch her singing (more like screaming) off-key in the car or procrastinating doing her homework. Her favorite things include the color blue, the show “How I Met Your Mother”, and her dog Payton. After a long day, she loves listening to music, online shopping, or binge-watching Netflix, instead of getting some much-needed sleep. You can reach Anna at 821079@hinsdale86.org.
