“We don’t recall a time when we haven’t liked the same things. Our parents always left the decision up to us. They always wanted us to do what we wanted, and they never forced us to do anything the same,” the twins said in an interview with Because Of Them We Can.

”We both agree that we wouldn’t change anything about our journey because we understand that God planned it to happen exactly as it has, even if we didn’t,” they added.

They mentioned that they view themselves as the closest companions, consistently offering praise and admiration to one another for every single stride they take forward in their journey.

“Your best friend gets to come to work with you every day. We are more efficient because we already know what each other is thinking. We can just look at each other and know what needs to be said or done next. We make one another so much better,” they said.

The Harris sisters said that their ultimate goal is to open their own clinic and create a scholarship for people of color pursuing careers in the medical field. “We feel we work much better together than apart,” they said.

“We would love to have established our own practice in addition to a scholarship fund and mentorship program for minority doctors…We desperately want to help change the narrative of healthcare,” the Harris sister added.
