Shonda and Shalisha Witherspoon, identical twin sisters recently graduated from Florida International University on May 10th. The sisters aged 25, completed their Bachelor of Science degrees at FUI’s College of Engineering and Computer Science in the IT sector with an average GPA of 3.95.
Apart from being toppers in their graduating class, these girls are also amongst the first of six siblings to go to college in their family. While earning their college degree, the Witherspoon twins learned to speak Japanese and wish to design tech apps and video games in Japan in the future. The girls developed a fond love for Japanese art and computers since childhood.
“They’re path breakers in every way,” FIU President Mark B. Rosenberg told the Miami Herald.
The Witherspoon twins developed a love for computers and Japanese art when they were little girls. They watched their older brother take devices apart and put them back together again. They would also watch him draw characters in the amine art style, a Japanese design.
Shonda and Shalisha received their K-12 education through homeschooling, which was undertaken by their parents. Their story disproves the erroneously flawed theory that home-schooled children cannot be prepared properly for college.
