In the crazy world we live in, a sweet story of equality, acceptance, and strong girls deserves to be celebrated—which is why everyone is taking notes from 4-year-old BFFs Jia Sarnicola and Zuri Copeland. The two Miami kids—who have been inseparable since meeting in school—believe that they are twins, and would prefer you don't tell them otherwise.
The self-proclaimed sisterhood began after the duo decided to have a joint birthday party—after all, they were born two days apart in June. Jia and Zuri donned matching outfits for the occasion (what else do you expect from a fun-loving set of twins?) and, as Buzzfeed reports, since that big day, the girls have come to the conclusion that because they have the same birthday, they're obviously twins.
Not surprisingly, other kids tried to tell them they weren't actually twins. According to Buzzfeed, one little girl said, "There is no way—you don't have the same color skin." A comment that made Jia cry—but not for long. Later that day the twins told Zuri's 23-year-old sister, Victoria Williams, "We have the same birthday and we share the same soul."
From that moment on it was clear that the soul sisters are the real deal, and they don't care what anyone else has to say about it. Williams found her sister's comments so profound she shared the story on Twitter and got everyone on board.
Scoot over Mary-Kate and Ashley, Jai and Zuri are everyone's new favorite set of twins—and we have the Tweets to prove it.
Jia said her & Zuri are twins so they are definitely twins. Those are the facts. They have the same birthday pic.twitter.com/vRtOz2bsJW
