Since I’ve started college I have been asked the same two questions more than ever in the past. Most classes often being with the instructor telling us to state two things, most commonly: where we’re from and something about ourselves. My answer to this classroom introduction prompt is always the same response. I start out by saying I’m from Indiana and my fun-fact is that I have a twin brother. This combination usually catches people off guard. These answers may not be typical for most students, but they always make for a great conversation starter. It’s not everyday that someone at UGA hears the words “I’m from Indiana.” This often comes as a shock to people when I reveal where I live. Not only that but most people are also often surprised when I tell them that I have a twin brother. Going to school about 700 miles away from my twin brother has definitely been a challenge. It’s pretty common knowledge that twins usually share somewhat of a unique bond, more so than ordinary siblings. Being far apart for such extended periods of time makes that relationship hard to leave. It makes me feel unique to be part of a twin relationship where we go to colleges that are so far apart.
