Tribe Designation: Beauty
Current Residence: Brooklyn, NY.

Personal Claim to Fame: I am most proud of participating in the World Games last summer in Jamundi, Colombia for frontball [handball]. I recently started working with the mayor on a scholarship program for kids out there in Colombia.
Inspiration in Life: Princess Diana because of all the love she had for people. She touched and helped anyone she could. She is my biggest inspiration.
Hobbies: Handball, reading, singing and playing piano.
Pet Peeves: Arrogance, ignorance and when someone picks on someone less fortunate.
3 Words to Describe You: Loyal, kind-hearted and perfectionist.
If You Could Have 3 Things on the Island What Would They Be and Why? A razor because I hate hair; a deck of cards because I love card games; and a toothbrush because who loves bad breath?
Survivor Contestant You Are Most Like: Parvati. I can be charming and would play up my innocent side so I could trick some males and wrap them around my finger.
Reason for Being on Survivor: I am a huge fan of Survivor and I have studied it for a long time. I'm clever enough to play this game well and win. My biggest inspiration to win is my mother. She is currently unemployed and I am supporting her so winning that money would help me buy a house for her.
Why You Think You'll "Survive" Survivor: I will be great outdoors. I'm not a girly girl so the dirty, smelly, sleep-depriving environment won't be so hard for me. I'm not lazy and would help the tribe tremendously in anything that would need to be done. I can catch fish, and I eat small portions. I am physically capable of kickin' butt out there. I have tons of energy which will help me last throughout the game.
Why You Think You Will Be the Sole Survivor: I know I will be the Sole Survivor because I am extremely good with people and I would form great relationships that could help me from getting voted out. I would make it to the end because I am not afraid to make moves. I will do what it takes to win.
Anna was initially placed on the "Beauty" tribe, Gondol. She immediately hit it off with the other women on her tribe, Julia Sokolowski and Michele Fitzgerald. Knowing they needed one more person to have the majority over their tribe, the women considered asking Tai Trang to join their alliance. However, after finding him looking for the Hidden Immunity Idol multiple times, the tribe began to lose trust in him. Gondol was the most successful of the three tribes and managed to win immunity at every challenge before the Tribe Switch.
After the Tribe Switch on Day 12, Anna was split up from her alliance but remained a member of Gondol along with Tai. The two also gained members Aubry Bracco, Joe del Campo, Peter Baggenstos, and Scot Pollard. Noticing that the "Brains" had the majority on the tribe, and that Julia would join whichever tribe lost the next Immunity Challenge, Anna knew that she needed to recruit Scot and Tai into a new alliance. After losing the next Immunity Challenge, the alliance seemed to be working, with Scot and Tai being on board and cracks appearing within the Brains contingent. They decided to target Peter as he was an outsider among the Brains and his attitude was annoying the tribe. Tai revealed his Hidden Immunity Idol to Anna and Scot and the plan to blindside Peter was set in motion. However, Scot convinced Tai to keep his idol and not play it on Anna. At Tribal Council the vote was set to be a 3-3 tie between Anna and Peter, but when Scot and Tai flipped on Anna she was blindsided in a unanimous vote.
