Interview with the Gemini Twins of Atlanta
Q. What made you want to be a model?
Actually, when we started Dancing two years ago, we realized the advantage that we had over alot of girls in the clubs. Identical Twins! We realized peoples reaction to our beauty and it being not just one, but two of us. So we decide to use our advantage of being identical twins and our personality to take over the Modeling industry.
Q. It’s very rare that you run across a set of twin models, do you two shoot together a lot or do you also do your own thing apart?
Since we started branding the “Gemini Twins” we never shoot apart. It will defeat the purpose of what we are branding. Maybe in the future once people start to identify us as Destiny and Dwany, we will start to do separate projects. But no time soon.
We are from Atlanta, Ga…..Yep! Georgia Peaches.
Q. What influences you the most when it comes to your drive ?
Our mom has always been a huge influence in our life, especially with her being a single parent, but the thought of being able to take care of my family is what keeps us going because its definitely possible. And God gave us the ability to go after whatever it is that you want. So why not go after it? We will never stop grinding, even after a million dollars.
Q. What do you think will set you apart from everybody else out here?
Our positive attitude, outgoing personality and humbleness definitely set us apart from alot of models in this industry. Beauty can only take you so far. And dont let me forget to say definitely our willingness to learn and being able to take constructive criticism, being on time and building honest and healthy business relationships is the foundation before you can advance anywhere.
Q. What projects do you have going on right now?
We have our Reality Show called “Seeing Doubles” Coming soon. We are working with BET on that deal. We have our G-string Adult tour coming in August presented by Streettalk productions. It will be The Geimini Twins and 5+ of Atl’s hottest Dancers. We also host events in Atlanta and in different cities. So we definitely grinding.
Q. Where do you see yourself next year in your career?
Wow, We see ourselves with our reality show, probably the second season. We really want a sitcom based around us, it will be hilarious. We see the Adult tour getting larger, we see more hosting, magazines and interviews. We see large ad campaigns. The second year we will begin branding the “NayJor Collection” which will be a collection of items from jeans, sunglasses, bags, fragrances, etc…..That’s why branding is so important right now…so we can do whatever we want next.
Q. Who do you look up to the most in the model industry ?
We don’t have anyone specific. I just love the model who used their fame and following to do something bigger. Modeling does come to and end, so you have to know what to do with your fan base.
Q. Who do you hope to work with in the future?
No specific names. Just people who are driven and business minded and that wants to make money.
Q. What would you say is your greatest achievement thus far?
Our greatest achievement is graduation college and making it this far being that we have been emancipated adults since the age of 16. We are truely blessed to have our determination and knowledge.
Q. What has been your biggest setback or challenge?
Our biggest challenge so far in the industry is dealing with the fame. Sometimes we question if its really worth it. We cant be Destiny and Dwany in public, we have to remember that people see us as the Gemini Twins. So no matter what you are going through in your personal life, you have to smile, give hugs, take pictures and sign autographs.
