Twins Siphesihle and Sinethemba Gwambe graduate with their Bachelor of Arts (Psychology) degrees.

Twin sisters, Siphesihle and Sinethemba Gwambe, bagged Bachelor of Arts degrees in psychology at the University of KwaZulu-Natal. The proud twins, from Pinetown in Durban, said it was their biggest academic achievement.

‘We are so happy to graduate together,’ said Siphesihle. ‘We have worked hard, always helping each other. It’s a great feeling to know that I’ve done this with my sister by my side.’

Sinethemba said: ‘Life has a funny way of making sure that we do things together. This degree has been no different. We now want to pursue our post-graduate studies together.’

The twins have been fascinated with psychology from an early age, both choosing to study for a degree in the profession. ‘We want to help people. There’s no greater joy than being able to help,’ said Siphesihle.

They thanked their family and friends for the ongoing support and encouragement and advised other students to work hard, stay motivated and pursue their post-graduate studies.
