On 6 June 2021 The Associated Press reported: The graduation of the twin sisters from a refugee family marked a key milestone in a journey that is a testament to their hard work, their parents' insistence that they place a high value on educational opportunities, and the collective efforts of those who helped two little girls who spoke only Somali when they started kindergarten. 'My mom, she repeated this proverb to us since we were kids. 'Aqoon la'aan wa iftiin la'aan,' which translates to 'Without education, there will be no light,' ' Anisa Dahir said. Global Good News service views this news as a sign of rising positivity in the field of education, documenting the growth of life-supporting, evolutionary trends.

The Dahir sisters were born in the United States, but their parents and older siblings were refugees in East Africa who were resettled in Utah.

... They [the sisters] were mentored by Westminster College students who helped them with schoolwork, college preparation, career planning, English language mastery, and other life skills. After enrolling at Westminster as college students themselves, they became after-school mentors themselves. ... The Dahir sisters have designs on becoming physician assistants.
