Mya and Madison have different approaches to education
While they are very similar, they approach education in very different ways, with Mya crediting her success to being organised.
''I've always been the type of person who does everything as soon as I get it because I figure I'd rather do it now than later,'' said Mya, according to a Because Of Them We Can report.
On the other hand, Madison leaves the organisation to her sister, finding strength in her work ethic.
''I'd attend to all of the study sessions, be in the library, do the tutoring sessions, and just put in the effort -- and then, knowing when I needed help, I'd ask for it,'' Madison said.
Twins enrol in university
Both ladies praise their families for their support, demonstrating that there are numerous paths to success.
The dynamic duo recently went to prom and graduated on May 16. They have both registered at the University of Toledo, where they will begin their studies in the fall with full scholarships.
They want to encourage other students to believe in themselves and keep a strong circle around them.
