Zoe Brown
When it comes down to it, managing schoolwork can be tough to handle. Think about being someone who can manage double the work. Zoe Brown ‘16 does just that. Brown performs a stunning job juggling her status as a good student, Editor-in-Chief of Inklings and her position as the co-president of TAG (Teen Awareness Group). But as Brown painfully put it, she never goes to bed before 12 and often her associations embezzle half her free time. Being impressive like Zoe comes with long hours of time and commitment.
Not everything fell into place for Brown from the start. Brown was forced to move to Westport in eighth grade after her father found a new job in Greenwich. This was especially agonizing for her after growing up in Bala Cynwyd, Pennsylvania for 14 years. The transition was tough going into the new school system. “It was terrible. I hated it. I was in this place where I was denying to myself that I would have to live here for the rest of my childhood and so I didn't branch out and make an effort to find a place,” she said.
Luckily, Brown’s love for writing set her up for three great years on Inklings, where she made many of her friends she still has today. Also this past summer Brown visited Columbia and Boston University, helping her with everything from feature design to investigative reporting.
After high school, Zoe hopes to study journalism and communications. But for now, she is set with the interesting people she meets on the job. Brown had a fun time interviewing an actor at an event held at Oscars Deli, saying how “he was very enthusiastic about the interview which made it fun.”
