It’s always refreshing to do things with your sister. Especially when you both have things in common.

If you’re a twin, it’s so easy to mirror one another with almost everything you both do. For identical twins Shera Grant and Shanta Owens, they’ve mirrored the passion to help their community in such a grand and impressive fashion as judges for their home state¬†of Alabama.

According to AL.COM, Both of the Birmingham natives graduated from Alabama State University. Both graduated from law school at Louisiana State University. While Grant went to Atlanta after law school and Owens came back to Birmingham, both ended up with jobs as prosecutors.

Their girls are both 6 years old and were born four months apart. Their sons are 3 years old and born four months apart. Their husbands, who they married two months apart in 2003, also have been best friends since kindergarten.

Shanta has been a district court judge since her election in 2008. She won a second term and is up for re-election in 2020.
