kembar konvo seirasMONDAY, 24 NOVEMBER – A pair of identical twins who majored in the same field in Bachelor of Science (Civil Engineering), Faculty of Engineering became the centre of attention at UMS 16th Convocation Ceremony recently.

Joanne Joseph Madis and Jolene Joseph Madis, 23, were dressed in the Kadazan costume at the ceremony which was held at Dewan Canselor (Chancellor Hall), UMS.

They were accompanied by their mother and siblings who expressed pride and gratitude to the university for all its services and knowledge given.

“We have a lot of invaluable experience during our studies here. What made it even more interesting was that we went through it all together,” said the twins.

Both aspired to become an engineer and expressed their sorrow of not having their father to share their success, as he died in 2009.

“We are all sad when our dad was gone. But this success belongs to our father and mother as well,” said them both. – SS (fl)
