“I was looking at the survey, and I was looking at Emily’s answers and I saw that we had a lot in common,” Mikayla Stern-Ellis told The Tulane Hullabaloo.


When they got to school, the girls were roomed in the same dorm, one floor apart, and both got parts in Tulane's production of "The Vagina Monologues." Over Thanksgiving break, they both bought the same sweater in different colors.
