Abby and Brittany Hensel: The conjoined twins that reached worldwide fame

Being able to walk, pick things up with our hands and turn our heads at will are things many of us take for granted. And yet, for some people in the world, those everyday things are mere dreams.

Abby and Brittany Hensel were born as conjoined twins and became world-famous after appearing on Oprah Winfrey at 6 years of age.

The Hensel twins have gone through a lot, having to deal with widespread prejudice and looks from people when walking in town. However, they never let anyone stand in their way of living their lives exactly the way they wanted to.

Today, Abby and Brittany are 30 years of age – and have found themselves in a very specific profession.

It’s all too easy to complain about the small things in life. Maybe the coffee was a little bit cold this morning, the lights took too long to turn green on the drive to work, it was too warm at the mall or there were too many people in line at the grocery store.
