At the beginning of the semester, we took on a new set of writers to join our wonderful staff. As a first assignment, we had them learn about each other so you could effectively learn about all of them. As you can probably tell, we think they’re superheroes already. Enjoy.
Kate Storey-Fisher: New writer, Kate Storey-Fisher, refers to herself as a “first-year” student…apparently the word freshman is too “androcentric.” She is 19 years old, from San Francisco, and taller than an oompa loompa. While Kate is a Physics major, she is actually most passionate about Instagramming, Snapchatting, baking, Zumba-ing, photoshopping, hiking, and, as of two weeks ago, BlogDailyHeralding. From the West Coast, Kate isn’t quite used to the snow, so she wishes that she could fly to avoid slipping on ice and falling flat on her face on her way from Pembroke to Barus & Holley.
Joseph Frankel: Joseph Frankel, or JFranks, is not one of those “I’m cooler than you because I’m from New York City” kids. That said, he’s from the City and does think he’s pretty cool. This is probably because he speaks French, Japanese, and Hebrew on top of his native New York tongue—so don’t fux with him. Joseph is concentrating in Neuroscience, and his hobbies include WBRU, Shakespeare on the Green, playing the guitar, and trying every coffee house in Providence (the verdict: Blue State still takes it). He has three older brothers and a blind bichon named Ace, and he can lift his left leg behind his head (Joseph, not the dog). If Joseph could have any superpower, he would go Matilda and get telekinesis, the power of moving objects with his mind—mainly so he could sneakily float muffins out of the Blue Room.
Katie Bright: Hailing from the mean streets of Manhattan’s Upper West Side, Katie Bright (known to friends and family as Khaki, KB, K-Bay, K-Baybay, and any variation thereof) couldn’t be happier to be joining the ranks of BlogDH. A renaissance woman, Katie’s interests include Urban Studies, ballet, collecting postcards, and the 1998 remake of Disney’s The Parent Trap starring Lindsay Lohan, which she knows by heart. When not serving the community in the Swearer Classroom Program, Kate loves to cook. But she has yet to recreate BuDS sweet potato fries, her favorite dish at Brown. Given the choice of any superpower, Katie would pick teleportation, so she could travel anywhere, including to her dream destination of Greece (a.k.a. the Lindsay Lohan of debtors).
