It takes two: Aniela Mack ’17 and Courtney Kobren ’17

Brown has 6,264 undergrads, 2,094 grad students, and 490 med students. Somehow, someway, a lot of these people look like each other. You might not know their names, and you might not be friends with them, but you know these pairs exist. And don’t you just want to tell them? We definitely do.

Meet Ani Mack and Courtney Kobren, both in the Class of 2017. Although this dopplingangin’ duo had never met, the pair immediately attributed their strong eyebrow game to their “It Takes Two” match-up. Ani is a proud Northern California girl studying economics, whereas Courtney admits that she is less inclined to show hometown pride for Long Island, and is double concentrating in Slavic Studies and BEO. Check out Ani and Courtney’s questions for each other after the jump!

Ani: What’s your favorite compliment to get on your eyebrows?

Courtney: Hm, I always get weird compliments on my eyebrows, especially when I get my makeup done.

A: Do you ever get compared to any celebrities?

C: By nobody other than my grandmother (laughs). What about you?

A: I don’t know, people always say different ones. I don’t think any of them actually mean anything, but one time my friend told me I looked like the girl from Game of Thrones who plays Khaleesi.

C: I actually think somebody told me that before!

A: Okay, so maybe it’s not that far-fetched.

C: What’s your favorite book?

A: I was that kid in middle school who on Friday and Saturday nights could be seen reading on my couch, so I read a lot of books. My favorite one is probably Pride and Prejudice, a class. How about you?

C: Solid. Mine’s To Kill a Mockingbird.

A: Oh my god, I was going to say that before! If you had to play one character in To Kill a Mockingbird, who would it be?

C: I mean, can I be so typical and say Boo Radley? Who would you play?

A: Freshman year we did the play in high school and I was Atticus, but I think you’re right. I want to play Boo Radley. If you could tell your thirteen-year-old self something, what would you tell yourself?

C: Um, find new friends? (laughs). No, honestly I have no clue because everything I learned was a worthwhile experience.

A: That’s a very zen perspective. I like that. I’d probably just tell myself to listen when my mom told me to wash my hair more.
