Welcome back to Kenyon Doppelgängers, this week featuring Rose Bialer ’20 and Lili Bernstein ’22. We have cast our net far and wide to find a pair such as these two! Both sporting luscious brown hair, gold hoops, and freckled faces meet for the very first time on a rainy day in Peirce. Both ladies even don flower names and are certainly as lovely as such flowers!
If the thought of whether either girl has a sibling here at Kenyon has crossed your mind, you are not alone. Rose was asked this very question, and for posterity’s sake, we must assume they were thinking about Lili. When I asked if they believed they look alike, both said that they definitely see the similarity, which has made me feel a lot better about persistently telling Rose that she has a ‘mini-me.’
Aside from their similar looks, they are both West Coast gals, Lili from sunny LA and Rose from her foggy sister, San Fransisco. Lili and Rose both have July birthdays, the 17th and 31st, respectively. Their interests certainly overlap as Rose is a Sociology major with an English minor, and Lili, with much time to decide, is interested in Women and Gender studies and Political Science.
Rose and Lili are both petite in stature, (Rose has one inch on a 5’2 Lili). However, she is elevated even more so by her fashionable yet practical, black Dansko clogs, which Lili plans on purchasing within the coming weeks.
Perhaps they are not clones, but their vibe, fashion sense, and freckles alone speak wonders!
