It is not every day you see fun loving, Missy Elliot channelling twins with impeccable taste in style that just happen to be deaf.
But Eritrean-Ethiopian models Hermon and Heroda have defied every stereotype and overcome all the odds to stand and be counted in the competitive world of fashion. Both 34-years-old, the two women have come a long way into accepting who they are after they both became deaf at the tender age of 7.
Born in Eritrea, Hermon and Heroda have managed to find an outlet of expression, something they both cherish and live for-fashion. Through their blog being_her, the twins seamlessly fuse their passion for style,travel and culture while showcasing fun snippets of their day to day lives.
Aside from that they also have other professional commitments, Hermon is professional actress while Heroda hopes to pursue a career in commercial modelling, after landing her first commercial for Smirnoff ‘We’re Open’ campaign last year.
