2 4yo Girls from Different Families Prove to Society that They are Twins since They Have the Same Birthday and the Same Soul


2 little girls want to prove to everyone that you do not have to be biological sisters to be twins. 4-year-old Jia Sarnicola and Zuri Copeland insist that they are twins and they do not follow the rules of science or society.

“You don’t know anything.” This is the answer they will give you if they are told they are not twins since they have different skin colors.

The kids have a bond stronger than blood or friendship, and they are fully aware that they do not look alike and are not related. However, when people doubt their belief that they are twins, they stand their ground and respond promptly. “We are twins because we have the same birthday and the same soul,” Jia told another child who doubted she and her bestie were twins.

Ancient Greek philosopher Plato (424/423 BC to 348 BC), it is possible for 2 people from different walks of life to be twins or “soulmates”. Technically, Jia, who is Caucasian, and Zuri, who is black, may still be considered twins, although they are not biologically related.

In Plato’s Symposium, Aristophanes tells the story of how Zeus – fearing that the powerful and physically perfect humans would rise against him – split human beings in half, creating distinct male and female counterparts. According to Aristophanes, that is why people talk about looking for their “second half” and equate falling in love with “feeling whole.”

The 2 girls are sticking to their story, believing that they do share 1 soul.

“They will tell you that they are twins, and they have a long list of reasons why to back it up,” Jia’s mom, Ashley Sarnicola, said.

Their birthdays are 2 days apart, which falls under the astrological sign Gemini, whose astrological symbol is twins. The girls have compassion and love for other people and would voice out opinions promptly. Jia and Zuri are full of energy when they are together. They love to sing and dance and wear matching clothes.

“I think that’s one of the nice things about growing up in a multicultural, melting pot city,” Ashley Sarnicola said. “They don’t see color. We’ve never talked to them about it, period.”

However, the girls’ moms are aware that their enthusiasm and strong energy may not last forever.

“You know, you’re happy for a few seconds, and then you become sad because they have to grow up – and then society takes over,” Zuri’s mom, Valencia Copeland, said.

The girls seem ready to face whatever challenges they may deal with while growing up. Right now, they are already strong enough and may someday change the view of society on people who are different from each other.

Victoria Williams, Zuri’s older sister, resorted to Twitter upon being informed of how the 2 girls believe that they share a soul.

The Twitter post instantly went viral and has garnered more than 67,000 ‘Likes’, with many netizens praising the two little girls.

Here is the video of the 2 besties that has since gone viral on social media:
