Kristie and Kirstie Bronner have more to celebrate than just finishing their undergraduate studies. The identical twins have made history as Spelman College‘s first ever co-valedictorians.
The music majors have identical grade point averages and according to an interview with WSB-TV, they pushed themselves so hard to maintain good grades that they even made themselves physically ill. Eventually, the two were able to manage their school workload in a way that would allow them to be healthy. Kristie said:
“We learned how to have a balance to life and then to be able to appreciate the journey of college and be more healthy and be more happy.”
After graduation, the sisters plan to join their father’s youth ministry at his church and later record a gospel album. Watch the video below as they reflect on their success.
