If you’re searching for an example of “sibling goals”, look at Rima and Mohammed Lafi. Rima is a year younger, but you can’t feel the age gap, because they’re doing the same course at the Institute of Medicine at RUDN University; they speak synchronously and tell the same jokes. “We’ve just been together for a long time, and everyone thinks we’re twins”, Rima laughs.
