Introducing this Spring’s Blogbabies!

Sydney Anderson ’19 is joining Blog as a Sophomore. Originally from Seattle, she’s concentrating in Public Health. If the whole Public Health thing doesn’t pan out, she also is a skilled barista who works at a French bakery during the summers! And if the whole barista thing doesn’t work out, she also loves Broad City, Law and Order: SVU, and Girls, so maybe she can like…make a career out of that? Sydney is extremely prepared for the INTENSELY physically grueling experience of being a Blog writer: one time she went on a 35-day white water rafting trip in Canada. If she were an animal, she’d be a red panda


Caroline Zerilli ’19 joins us from the far-off lands of Barcelona, Spain and Middlebury, Vermont. A sophomore concentrating in English Nonfiction, Caroline originally hails from Long Island.

Caroline is new to Brown, greener even than the 2020 freshbabies: after transferring, she spent her Fall semester abroad through the Brown in Spain program. Despite only recently being able to call Brown – Grad Center in particular – her home, Caroline is already involved in the community as a writer for The Rib, a sister in Alpha Chi Omega, and, of course, a new member of the Blog team.

Blonde, smiley, and funny as hell, Caroline says that if she were an animal, she would be a “shy Hufflepuff corgi.”

“I want the little legs. I want to know what they would feel like.”



Charlotte Chazen ’19 may be new to Brown (she transferred last semester!), but she’s a veteran East Coaster. Charlotte has lived all over, hailing from “the Island” (of Manhattan), she attended Andover (in Massachusetts, our friendly neighbor), and transferred from MIT. We know Charlotte’s a city gal, but she won’t hesitate to explore. In fact, she spent last summer living on a glacier in Alaska on a NOLS trip. She skied and snowshoed, living a life of mystery, never knowing if she was walking on glacier or over a crevasse (or about to fall into a crevasse). Charlotte’s diverse background doesn’t end here. At Brown, she studies literary arts and computer engineering and rows crew. If she were an animal, she’d be a zebra.



Cashen Conroy ’19 is a sophomore transfer student hailing from the far away land of Massachusetts. A fun fact about her is that she is a triplet, and has a strong appreciation for Harry Potter (a clear sign of good character). Her top picks for a Netflix binge session include Gilmore Girls, Stranger Things, Orange is the New Black and Lovesick. Cashen is also an avid singer, and is part of Brown’s second youngest all female a capella group, the Ursa Minors. Her vegetable of choice is an avocado (is it a fruit? a vegetable? Who knows? It’s delicious either way.) After careful deliberation, she decided that the animal she most strongly identifies with is an otter.



Julia Sinclair ’20 is a first-year from Brazil with a fondness for TV shows that start with the letter G (Game of Thrones, Gilmore Girls, Gossip Girl, Grey’s Anatomy), extracurriculars that start with B (BEAM, Blog!), and academic subjects that start with E (Economics and English). Julia is notable not only for her her alliterative lifestyle but also her creativity, exemplified by her decision to name her dog “Cookie” because, well, she likes cookies. If she were an animal she would be a panda because she would get to eat and sleep all day.



Caroline Sprague ’20 is a first-year hailing from the faraway land of Western Massachusetts. Though she has no idea what she wants to study, she’s already jumped into wide world of Brown as she’s taking American Sign Language in the 1-faculty ASL department and Computer Science for babies (her words not mine). After single-handedly trashing her high school Track & Field team, she learned her lesson and now sticks to the books, stage, air (aerial arts, impressive. I know). When she’s on the ground, you can find Caroline dancing for fun, tutoring for BRYTE, or watching Jane The Virgin. If she were an animal, she’d be a fox, though her friends disagree and make arguments for a hawk and snake as well. She says it’s because of the snake’s poison, which is … frankly sort of frightening. We’re going to have to wait and see just how killer her writing truly is!
