Alicia and Brandi both mentioned that they’ve discovered true sisterhood through their friendship.

“I was telling everyone earlier that we’ve really only been getting to know each other for the last couple of years, but we’ve really grown to sort of become sisters,” Brandi said.

“With you, Brandi, I feel like I’ve met someone who is such a true sister,” Alicia added. I can call you and say, ‘Hey,’ and you can call me and say, ‘Hey,’ and we’ll both show up. It’s a very rare occurrence, so I treasure it.”
