A TALE OF TWO TWINS

Isabella, the older twin (by minutes!)

Hello, my name is Isabella and I have an identical twin sister named Gianna! Since National Twin Day is in the month of August, I am going to tell what it’s like being a twin. First of all, I am the older twin by three minutes, but my sister was born a quarter of an inch taller than me. Though we have a lot of similarities, we actually have a lot of differences.

One of our very many differences is that my sister is the bolder, more talkative, and competitive twin while I am more quiet and sensitive. I love anything pink but my sister dislikes pink and loves purple or blue. We have the same taste in clothes but we usually wear opposite colors. Also, she likes to read realistic fiction books based on the life of the character while I am the one who’s more into action books.

Aside from differences, we have a lot of things in common like our taste in movies, clothes or activities. For example, we both love animals, exercise by playing volleyball or Just Dance, Selena Quintanilla, fashion, cartoons, and the U.S. version of the show “The Office.”

We also have a lot of qualities that make us unique, such as the fact that we sometimes will be thinking the same thing at the same time without knowing it or we’ll know what each other is saying or thinking without needing to say a word. Another thing is that we get along really well and don’t really argue. One of the questions we get asked often is if we like being twins, and I do! I like that I have someone to talk to and experience new things with. Also, because we are twins we do a lot of sharing.

In conclusion, my sister and I have a lot of fun being twins and, for those of you who wonder what it's like to be a twin, I hope your questions are answered!

Gianna, the younger twin

 My name is Gianna and I have an identical twin sister named Isabella. Since National Twin Day is in August, I would like to tell you, from my perspective, what it’s like to be a twin.

 When my twin and I were born, Isabella was older than me by three minutes, but since then, I’ve always been a quarter of an inch taller. We’ve been best friends since we were young and we do a lot of activities together.

Although we are twins, we each have our own personalities and interests that make us very opposite from each other. For example, Isabella sticks to what she likes, but I like to try new things. She likes to go to bed early when she can, but I like to stay up really late. She has a more calm and reserved personality and I’m more energetic and outgoing.

Isabella and I are very different, but at the same time,

we are very alike in many ways. We both have a very kind and caring personality, share the same interests in movies and TV shows, and both enjoy doing activities like Just Dance, painting and swimming.

The best thing about being a twin is that I always have someone to talk to and have fun with.
