Dane and Stephanie, twin siblings who harmonize together angelically, might be familiar to you from this season of NBC’s “The Voice.” Recently, I got to ask them questions about themselves, their careers, and their love for what they do.
Dane and Stephanie are twins from Bloomfield, New Jersey. They are cousins of mine, and I can remember participating alongside them in sports, talent shows, and musicals. Both Dane and Stephanie have always shown passion in what they do, and is clear to see when watching them sing together. You can watch them sing on their YouTube channel or Instagram (@daneandstephanie). If you haven’t started watching this season, you can tune in NBC on Monday and Tuesday nights to watch!
"I’ve always loved traveling. Ever since I was practically a baby, I’ve enjoyed going anywhere that would venture me into new adventures, opening myself to a world that might change my life forever. When I was a kid, I would say that geography is my favorite subject because I've always wanted to learn about this vast world out there and always dreamed about growing up traveling to these different countries around the world.
Anamesa is proud to showcase, represent and support individuals who dedicate their time to making the world a little better (in whatever way that may be). Fortunately for myself, I know a lot of inspiring, hard working people. One of them being my friend Juliana.
Scorpios are a water sign, ruled by Pluto and Mars. They are known to be assertive, dominant, and passionate people. Scorpios will search high and low to find the truth about things or to piece things together. They make great leaders, and are also extremely resourceful. Scorpios love to experience and express their emotions, but they manifest this much differently than the other water signs. Scorpios are also great secret keepers, and make for loyal partners and friends. They are known for being the most sensual sign, and often have a sultry aura to them.
Because Pluto rules Scorpio, their demeanor is rather calm and collected. However, any Scorpio is also known to have a mysterious side to them.
The Agape Cause was started by Erica Meyler, of New Jersey, when her passion for the environment accidentally fueled a business idea. Erica speaks on starting The Agape Cause: "I actually came up with the idea by accident. I posted a story on Instagram as a joke when I bought some metal straws, poking fun at beauty gurus when they post swatches of their new products. I was really surprised that everyone took it seriously, but looking back it was because I was always trying to spread awareness about causes I cared about, especially centered around conservation and environmentalism. It was perfect how it fell into my lap, because I was always extremely frustrated with how I felt like these issues were out of my hands and I didn’t know how to help, but this was a great way. I think most people feel that way, so my main goal is to give people the tools they need to start getting involved and feel like their efforts matter. Thats why a percentage of the proceeds from each product will be donated to the cause it was inspired by!"
I started to feel like my generation didn't have a place a while back. I knew that I wasn't a millennial. I was born in '96, which in most cases edges me out of the generation altogether, although some argue that up to 1996 are technically millennials. Millennials are people who reached young adulthood during the early years of the 21st century (which, according to the internet, started in 2001). Considering the end of the 21st century isn’t until December 31st, 2100, then technically you would consider someone born in 1996 to reach young adulthood during the early years of the 21st century. However, I’ve never met anyone near my age who considers themselves a millennial.
