I don’t believe many of you know that I have a twin brother. Yes, we are identical and are very close. My name is Jessi Dominguez and my brother’s name is Christian Dominguez.
My mother was in bed rest for 3 months prior to giving birth to us in the Nassau County Hospital. On July 3rd, 1995 with no epidural, my mother gave birth to my brother at 11:25am. She actually forgot I was coming until the doctor told her to push again. At 11:28am the amazing Jessi was born.
We grew up as usual twins. Dressing up the same exact way, sleeping in the same bed etc.
But how do you distinguish us from one another?
We do answer to both names since we are used to being called by the wrong name. But anyways, I am more outgoing and tend to smile at all times. Christian is more reserved and a bit serious. He needs to warm up to new people first, unlike me. Also, I am the heavier twin. One thing that gets on my nerves is when someone says “OMG! I KNOW WHICH ONE IS WHICH! YOU’RE THE FATTER TWIN”. All I do is smile and try to contain my hand that would slap them across their face. Haha! Lastly, people remember our birthmarks above our lips and distinguish us that way.
In present day, we have a YouTube Channel that we started last summer, but due to school and work we have been slacking on our account. Trust me we will get back on it and even though we don’t have many subscribers, we will do our best possible to become known as “The Dominguez Twins”.
All in all, we are each other’s best friends and tell each other everything. We know how to push each other’s buttons and help each other out when we need it. It’s an incredible bond that I will cherish forever.
