My name is Anna Perlstein. I am a senior advertising major at the University of Florida. I am from Long Island, New York. I have two siblings, a brother named Eddie and a sister named Rosie. I have two dogs, both golden doodles.

It was during the summer I spent here in Gainesville three years ago, that I decided that I wanted to attend law school. It was three years ago that I realized what I wanted to do with my life. I knew the process ahead was going to be very stressful, but after talking with my parents we all decided that it was the right choice for me. For these past few years I have been juggling my school work, LSAT studies, social life, and health, which is definitely tiring. In my senior year, I can say I have finally learned how to manage all these responsibilities. A typical day for me (when I don’t have class) looks like waking up at 9 AM to go to the library. Taking a break in the middle to go to lunch at my sorority house, Delta Phi Epsilon. Then going to a barre class to decompress and exercise. After that, I will either go back to the library or study in my room. This schedule allows me to get my work done as well as find time to relax.
