Mockers of the Month
Vanessa Aceves has been award Illinois Trial Team's Mocker of the Month for November. Vanessa's extreme talent in the world of mock trial is only one of the few things she brings to the organization. Not only is she dedicated and committed to the team, but she brings a positive energy to everything that she does. She has also won multiple witness awards, which is a testament to her ability to really stand out. It was an effortless decision to make her play our defendant for this year's case, and she has proven again her insane ability to create a sympathetic character that grabs your attention. She is also going to be taking on the role of playing a plaintiff attorney, with an opening statement, and I'm very excited to see her throughout the rest of the season.
