It was Joy x 2 for the Dlomo household when twin sisters Bongekile and S’Bongile Dlomo graduated together with Bachelor of Science degrees in Dietetics and Human Nutrition.
‘Graduating feels so surreal and a dream come true for my sister and I,’ said Bongekile. ‘It has been a hard four years of studies but we made it through together.’
The twins, from Umlazi, Durban, said being a UKZN graduate was humbling.
‘To every girl out there we want to say everything is possible. South Africa needs more educated women, especially from humble beginnings,’ said Bongekile.
The sisters are doing their community service, Bongekile at oSindisweni Hospital and Sbongile at uMphumulo Hospital.
They plan to set up a practice together.
