The IV Twins Meeting was held on the afternoon of December 6, 2019, at the Carolina Bori Auditorium of USP's Institute of Psychology.

After the break, the conversation circles with the twins began, led by the students Lucas Outeda Fernandes and Gustavo Cesar Crivello, both twins. The theme was “twins and school”. Several twins made speeches pointing out the subtleties of everyday life and their experiences on having a twin brother.

 

Then, we had the artistic presentations of the event: the twins Helena and Beatriz Contrera Toro had a show singing and playing the piano! Among the songs they sang, there was no lack of Beatles songs. At the end of the event, Karaoke was made available, in which everyone had a great time singing, including the event's organizing team. The USP’s Twins Panel team thanks everyone for their presence and we hope to see you again at the next Meetings!
