Just when you think the world has gone bonkers, you hear about Sirina and Anisa Prasad.
The twins are Staples High School’s valedictorian and salutatorian, respectively.
They’re warm, wonderful girls. They work hard in school, at the subjects they love (math, science, economics, English, the environment — everything, actually).
They started a Staples Science Olympiad team, competed in the Federal Reserve challenge (and advanced to next month’s semifinals), and spent the summer researching solar cells. The year before, they interned at a water quality lab.
But they also knit, bake and play video games. They enjoy each other, and their friends.
They never planned on being Staples’ top 2 students. It just happened. And everyone is delighted for them.
WNBC Channel 4 sent a crew to interview them today (Thursday). The segment is scheduled for the 5 p.m. news.
I have no idea what they’ll say. But I know they’ll say it well, and with plenty of enthusiasm.
And I’m sure they’ll be smiling all the way through.
FUN FACT: The Prasads are not the first twins to be valedictorian and salutatorian. Eric and Todd Lubin turned the double play in 2011.
