If you’re feeling down on this lovely Friday afternoon, we’ve got a feel-good story to put you in good spirits. Identical twins Kristie and Kirstie Bronner enrolled at Spelman College in Atlanta, Gerorgia, with the determination to academically make the most during their stint as undergraduate students and achieve 4.0 GPAs.
“Before we came to college we prayed that we would keep 4.0s all the way through but I don’t think we ever really expected it,” Kirstie told WSBTV.
Not only did the sisters stick with their goal to attain stellar grade point averages, but they made history in the process by becoming the historic college’s first co-valedictorians.
“You don’t have to be the smartest. You don’t have to be the one who came in with the prior knowledge to be the one to succeed. It’s a great testimony and it’s also fun to be able to share it with one another. I don’t think we’d want it any other way,” Kristie said of she and her sister’s accomplishment.
The achievement certainly didn’t come without sacrifice. The Bronner sisters revealed that scoring a perfect GPA was hard work, but in the midst of it all, they were able to find balance.
“We learned how to have a balance to life and then to be able to appreciate the journey of college and be more healthy and be more happy,” Kristie expressed.
“Every semester we learned something new about life, things we could apply to life, things we could apply to school,” Kirstie added.
To top it off, both sisters majored in music and have amazing voices! They have plans to record a youth contemporary gospel album after graduation.
