Freshman twins were asked questions about their lives to see if growing up as a twin lived up to the hype of the movies and on television shows.

Multiple sets of same and opposite gender twins were interviewed to see how their answers would vary among the two sets of twins in each group, because not everyone has the same experience growing up.

All the twins interviewed were given the same questions. Each twin was interviewed separately to make sure he or she was not just agreeing with their counterpart.

“For me it wasn’t anything special; he was just my brother; it is nice having someone your age and to have your back all the time. He’s always there for me and I am always there for him,” commented freshman Carly O’Leary.

Freshman students, the Hasbun twins, were asked if they had ever wished they were not twins. Ryan said ” I like being a twin,” and ” I wouldn’t have enjoyed being an only child.” On the other hand, Albert said “he had wished he was not a twin because teachers get us mixed up.”

For the O’Learys, Carly and Jack, they have had to convince others that they are actually twins because they “look nothing alike,” and “it takes people a little while to believe that we are truly twins!”  replied Carly.

For the Cataneos, Dan and Ben, because they are fraternal twins, they look very different. “I remember someone tried to convince me that we weren’t twins,” described Ben.

All the twins said they argued more as kids. Other than Albert and Ben, all the other twins said they liked being and growing up as a twin.
