A set of twins from Baton Rouge have received more than 200 offers from colleges and universities around the world, amounting to a total upwards of $24 million in scholarships.
As per reports, Denisha and Destiny Caldwell, students at Scotlandville Magnet High have already decided that they want to attend UCLA, but that’s not for lack of other options.
“We started off competing against each other, and now we compete with each other,” Destiny said, as per WBZR.
“From searching on the internet, we definitely have over 200 offers right now. We are definitely setting a world record right now,” Denisha added.
The two girls were forced to switch their classes to online learning last year as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, but they hardly let that stop them.
Having graduated high school, Destiny and Denisha now hope that their inspirational journey can inspire others to be the best that they can be.
“Strive to be the best that you can be, the best version of yourself. Do not let the negativity get to you,” Denisha said.
As per reports, the twins are vying to major in math and science so that they can pursue careers in the field of medicine.
Congratulations, Destiny and Denisha! To have received offers from so many universities and colleges is truly amazing.
