Denisha and Destiny Caldwell, have a lot to celebrate as they say goodbye to high school as a part of the class of 2021. This pair has more than you think to celebrate as these identical twins earned $24 million in college scholarship offers.
“We started off competing against each other, and now we compete with each other,” Destiny Caldwell told KTBS-TV in an interview.
Although they started off competing against each other, Denisha told Good Morning America that, “In the end we said, ‘Let’s just work together and end at the top. It’s an unbreakable bond. Once you see, me you know you’re going to see Destiny.”
Destiny concluded telling GMA that, “There’s no separation between us. We are two hearts apart.”
The 18-year-old seniors from Scotlandville Magnet High School in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, will graduate top in their class. The pair received offers from more than 200 colleges and universities around the world.
So, just where have they decided to call home for at least the next four years? Well, the pair is heading off to sunny California to attend UCLA in the fall, where they will major in math and science. Both of their girls have said that they want to eventually pursue careers in the medicine.
Destiny the school’s valedictorian with a 4.0 GPA and her sister Denisha is this year’s salutatorian, with a 3.95 GPA.
Yet, the pair do not limit themselves just to the books. Destiny and Denisha are both involved in competitive dance, the Stanford University emergency medicine program and they are interns at the Artz Performance Academy. As if that wasn’t keeping them busy enough, the sisters also perform community service for the Butterfly Society, which is an organization that provides assistance to domestic violence survivors.
And of course, this phenomenal pair of sisters both have advice to those who are coming along behind them.
Destiny’s advice: “sky’s the limit. Achieve everything you want to accomplish and accomplish everything you want to achieve,”
Denisha’s advice: “don’t allow negativity to break you down. Use it as motivation,” she said. “Use everything as a positive.”
Congratulations Destiny and Denisha! We cannot wait to see what the future holds for the both of you!
