These twin sisters find togetherness in being apart, at different schools

Carson Eckhard and her twin sister, Sykes, are freshmen in high school, but at different places: Carson at Robinson High and Sykes at Berkeley Prep. In this conversation, they discuss why that is their choice.

Five reasons we're glad we don't go to school with our twin:

1 Carson: I think one of the biggest reasons is that no one compares us to each other.

Sykes: Yeah, definitely. I like not everyone comparing our talents.

2 Sykes: And we can share clothes without anyone saying, "Didn't Carson wear that the other day?"

Carson: I agree.

3 Carson: Having our own friends is pretty great, too.

Sykes: Yeah, meeting each others' friends is really fun.

4 Carson: It's also nice to be my own person. No one says, "Oh yeah, you're a twin!"

Sykes: It's nice to not have anyone asking why we're so different.

5 Sykes: And I think that being at different schools has made us closer.

Carson: I agree. As we make our own friends and discover our own talents, I think we appreciate each other more.

Sykes: Exactly.
