Meet the twins who took the Chicago Public School System by storm. Attending Lindblom Math and Science Academy, one of Illinois top ranked High Schools, Tia and Tyra dominated the CPS curriculum to become Co-Valedictorians.
They finished their high school career with straight A’s. The most impressive part of accomplishing this feat, was the fact that they each had 12 Advanced Placement Courses. With this impressive transcript, they both earned full academic scholarships to elite US Universities, Duke and Northwestern.
This Fall Tia will be studying Statistics at Duke and Tyra will be studying Economics at Northwestern. They both plan to also study Theater as they both were apart of Steppenwolf Theatre’s Young Adult Council and the Goodman Theatre’s Bandle Young Critics programs.
This Fall, the twins newest challenge would be in the form of being apart from one another, as to date the longest the two have been apart was 1 full day when Tia went to visit Duke earlier this Spring. Tia and Tyra are excited to embark on this new journey, as they each made the best individual decision for their future.
