“Why fit in when you were born to stand out!”

a motto that Erin and Desiree Green better known as TWIN OF AKIND, stand by. 

These two beautiful and vivacious ladies are an example of uniqueness.  As models, entertainers, hosts, spokesmodels, motivational speakers, and founders of an empowerment organization, they wear many different hats.  They may look the same, have a similar walk, and carry themselves in the same manner but their personalities are quite unique.

They didn’t see things quite this way growing up.  They tried their best to fit in with the in-crowd.  Found it difficult to grab the attention of others and socially were labeled as ‘awkward’.  They were ridiculed and bullied as youth for their lack of size and appearance.  Overcoming childhood obstacles, led them to share their experiences with others through the development of TWIN OF A KIND Foundation, non-profit, 501c3 established in 2013.  TWIN OF A KIND Foundation (TOAK) is a self-empowerment organization based on increasing awareness on social issues impacting youth and young adults.  The curriculum helps participants build self-esteem and create positive self-awareness by motivating and encouraging youth/young adults to see their potential.  A hallmark of TOAK is gaining self-acceptance and the understanding that everyone is different in their own way.  TOAK provides empowerment programs, motivational speakers, community conferences, and interactive workshops.

Their defining moments that have led them out of their zone of isolation and fear was being able to find focus, conquer self-doubt and just simply take risks.  They gained their confidence by taking risks and appearing on Fear Factor (Twins Edition) in 2005; appearing on a music video by Slum Village titled, “Selfish” featuring Kanye West; while captivating their audiences on the runway with their dynamic synchronized strut, wearing the hottest trends and fashions of many fashion designers; as well as appearing on The REAL daytime talk show in 2014 to help two bullied teens overcome victimization and receive a make-over.  Embracing size and appearance on countless amounts of print ads; obtaining over 30 years of combined experience in the mental health field; and most of all just being a twin and always knowing they had someone by their side.

The twins’ purpose is to share their testimonies with the world and make a difference.   The dynamic duo wants to help youth and young adults share their stories, accept it as their truth, find purpose; love themselves for what they have endured, take risks and tap into their potential.  Desiree and Erin Green are living testimonies of tapping into their potential and have formed the brand, TWIN OF A KIND.
