The Quann Sisters are It-Girls to say the least. From making photographers stop in their tracks at fashion week to creating original music and running popular blog Urban Bush Babes, they’re a force to be reckoned with. We spoke to the identical twins about sisterhood and how we can make the best of our relationships with our sisters this year, whether they’re blood-related or not. From showing unconditional love to the importance of building a circle of friends you can depend on, the Quann twins weigh in on making the best of your sisterhood in 2016.
On What Sisterhood Means
Cipriana: Sisterhood means an impenetrable force. A place where you feel safe and protected because you know who or those surround you only have your best interests at heart, showing it through unconditional love everyday.
Cultivating Relationships With Likeminded Women is Imperative
Cipriana: More important than words can ever express! Seeing women succeed in what they truly want to do or be not only makes my heart sing and happy like a kid on a snow school day, but it inspires me. Supporting one another is how we can all rise regardless of the limitations some might try to place. People think success is this exclusive club that only a few can possess…that could be further from the truth. Yes, it might take others much longer and harder to achieve their goals due to past circumstances, but the past does not define you, we have to be more than our excuses.
Cultivating relationships with women who not only talk the talk but walk the walk creates a window for others to see it is possible! This window in return creates a world that inspires and inspiring others is how we can create real change…just by doing what you love. Supporting women to believe in themselves is the backbone of what we do which is why working with my sister is a match made in heaven.
TK: A support system that creates an ambience of positivity is imperative. This system exhorts women to be strong, intelligent and considerate. Not everyone has a healthy support system and sometimes the result is negative energy towards one another. The derivative of a healthy support system isn’t necessarily a large circle of friends, could be a circle of one, but it’s important to recognize which relationships are healthy ones before…to read our complete interview including the key to sisterhood and what we admire most about each other visit essence.com here
