“I have my laptop to do my homework, and Lupita will put on headphones and listen to music or use her phone.”

Carmen also revealed that when they were six years old, they both had nightmares about a plane crash and when they woke up, they fell out of bed.
She added that in another incident, they were at a mall and she felt a strange feeling in her stomach that she knew came from her sister:
“A man was pretending to film his daughter, but he was really filming us. I didn’t notice, but Lupita did. She’s much more observant.”
The twins said their life was fulfilling as they enjoyed it like anyone else by going to concerts, watching movies and traveling on planes. Carmen noted that they wanted to hit the gym and train so they could carry big dogs, as is the norm in their careers as vets.
However, the twin sisters said they also went through tough times. Carmen said they sometimes receive nasty comments on social media from people who ask them deeply personal questions:
“A lot of people don’t have a habit of… setting or creating boundaries when it comes to our disability. But you have to remember: we’re not just conjoined twins, we’re people.”
