Why Girl Twin Solutions?
If I run into anyone who knows of my hometown of Healy, Kan., I will refer to myself as the “girl twin,” rather than I am Gary Brooks' daughter (he had two) or his child (he had three). In a community of less than 300, my twin brother and I were one of few twin sets who lived there all our 18 years of childhood. I believe the next set closest in age were still decades apart from us. Thus, this is my most unique – and memorable - claim to fame.
I love being a twin - while we never experienced those "twin moments" some people share, I do find it interesting that I had to learn to refer to myself in the singular form. Even today, I slip into "we" or "us" when referring to my childhood.
Perhaps the most impactful part of sharing my childhood with another was the continuous training of teamwork. Sibling interaction plays a huge role in development, and I would argue being a twin, especially when growing up in such a small town, helped me be more effective when working with others. Whether in play, school or rest, I always had a partner until we graduated college and began families of our own.
I would say 22-plus-years of practicing team dynamics makes me an expert, don’t you think?
