The twins were able to accomplish this feat due to their high grades and active participation in various student organizations. Because of this, the two were able to afford applying to 42 colleges for only $200.

With the help of college fairs and the common application programs, which allow you to apply to a multitude of colleges and universities for a very minimal rate, the twins were able to reach out to as many colleges as they would like, landing them offers, which are hard to say no to.

However, despite the multitude of colleges and universities that are offering them scholarship grants, the twins had to make a choice. Thus they narrowed their option to two universities. One of them is North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University which is located in Greensboro, North Carolina, and the other one is Howard University, which is located in Washington D.C.

The twins see that their college education is very important to them and that they could do anything they want and achieve their dreams as long as they get the proper education that they need. As one of the sisters put it “We were brought up in an environment that constantly reminded us that we could do and be whatever we wanted to be. Education is the foundation which can’t be destroyed by race or gender”
