Three’s A Charm

Sophomore Natalie Cohen stands with her twins, Jacob and Olivia Cohen. While growing up a triplet could seem intimidating, Cohen said that she really likes being a triplet.
“Being a triplet gives me a built-in interesting fact about myself,” Cohenn said. “I always have at least one sibling around, and it’s nice having two siblings around, especially since it’s one boy and one girl. It’s super fun when we occasionally get put in a class all together at school because it can be interesting and entertaining when we’re all together.”

Many students have a younger or older brother or sister, maybe even multiple, but sophomore Natalie Cohen is a triplet with her siblings, Olivia and Jacob.

While living with two other kids your age could seem intimidating, Cohen said that she really enjoys being a triplet.

“Being a triplet gives me a built-in interesting fact about myself,” Cohen said. “I always have at least one sibling around, and it’s nice having two siblings around, especially since it’s one boy and one girl. It’s super fun when we occasionally get put in a class all together at school because it can be interesting and entertaining when we’re all together. We don’t have an older sibling to be a guinea pig for everything, so we all go through milestones at the same time, such as driving and school.”

When the fraternal triplets were younger, their lives were much more entwined, according to Cohen.

“When we were younger up until middle school we would have big combined parties, but now we all have different friends so we do our own things,” Cohen said. “We’ve been going to the same school with a lot of the same people since elementary and middle school, so most people know we are triplets. If someone didn’t know all of us then they wouldn’t know that we are triplets because we don’t look very much alike.”

According to Cohen, triplets aren’t always stuck at the hip, contrary to popular belief, and said that she is much closer to one sibling rather than the other.

“I’m very close with my sister right now, but not as close with my brother,” Cohen said. “He and I have very different personalities because he is very reserved and introverted while I am more extroverted and social. Since he is busy with school and band we don’t talk about our lives that much. Olivia and I used to not be close at all, but once we got older and more mature we’ve gotten super close, despite having pretty different personalities. Both of us have gone through a lot of similar experiences and are able to help one another a lot. From talking to friends and other people, my sister and I are probably closer than some siblings that we know.”

While the triplets are still close, Cohen said that her brother and sister are more alike than she is with them.

“They are both in band so they are always super busy,” Cohen said. “The two of them are really hard workers when it comes to school and academics. I am more extroverted and spend more time with people and strengthening relationships. I do work hard in school too, but we have very different ways of thinking. Olivia and Jacob are very deep, critical thinkers, and I’m more simple minded, mostly in academics.”

The triplets are similar in one certain way though, and that is art, according to Cohen.

“We are all artistic,” Cohen said. “But we are artistic in different ways. My siblings are more artistic musically from band, while I love photography, videography and drawing.”
