Annabella Rockwell, class of 2015, majors in History and minors in Politics.  She is the Co-Chair of The Network: Mount Holyoke's social programming board, plays on our ice hockey team, and works as the liaison between the Office of Residential Life and WILD, Women in Leadership Development. She mentioned, “as head of the social programming board, I spend most of my free time in Blanchard discussing Mount Holyoke and possible fun events with my peers. Blanchard is conveniently one of my favorite places because it is the social center of the campus and right on the beautiful Skinner Green!” She spent the summer of 2014 working as a legal intern for a criminal defense lawyer, Elizabeth Parker, in West Palm Beach. As a legal intern, she assisted with legal research, investigations, trial preparation, deposition preparation, and motion preparation. She also attended hearings and assisted with organizing witnesses, exhibits, and documents. Annabella studied abroad in the summer between her sophomore and junior years at Franklin College in Lugano, Switzerland.  Annabella loves “the warmth you feel when you enter the campus and the intimate relationships within the student body and the professors.”  After graduating, she is planning to prepare for the LSAT and apply to law school.
