Hi! My name is Isabella Palisi, and I'm a junior here at Foran. This is my second year in Journalism and I'm so excited to be writing for the paper again. I am the Event Organizer for the Key Club, help run The Giving Table, and am apart of Natural Helpers. In my free time I love to be with friends and get outside. I'm looking forward to another great year at Foran!
