Keane and Ethan Wong

Keane & Ethan Wong

Q: What’s it like having a twin brother?

Ethan:  “We finish each other’s thoughts.”

Keane: “Sometimes, I have him read a book while I’m taking a test so he can transfer his thoughts to mine. And I do the same thing for him. I always get one purposely wrong, just to mess with him. We’re also capable of transforming into superhumans…”

Ethan: “…And we can also shape shift.”

Q: You guys can shape shift into each other?

Both, at the same time: “Yes.”

Keane: “That’s a fact.”

Q: How is it like getting between classes?

“Ten minutes to get between classes is way longer as opposed to the five minutes we got in Suzanne. It’s kind of hard to get books from my locker when there’s always people standing in front, though. It’s just a hassle to get books in between every period, especially if your locker is on the other side of school, but I guess it’s understandable because the school can’t supply students with their own books and a class set.”

Q: Is there anything you have been struggling with?

“The teachers give a lot of homework and it’s just hard finding the time to do all of it, especially when I have after school activities. I’m in volleyball and volleyball doesn’t end until four for me, so by the time I get home and start my homework, there’s not that much time left.”

Q: What’s the difference between middle school and high school for you?

Q: What’s the weirdest thing you’ve experienced on campus?

“There were some stray dogs we saw by the choir room. At first, I thought it was normal, like they were a mascot or something; I thought they were there for a reason. When I found out they were strays, I wanted to take them with me, but I already have two dogs.”
