When Desta Fisseha was growing up in Ethiopia her grandmother told her that education was the path to independence and a better life. That meant sacrifices along the way, like wearing her hair chopped short and making herself plain so boys wouldn't call and interrupt her studies. Fisseha brought versions of these rules to the raising of her children. "I didn't allow sleepovers or watching TV," she said. "And there was no dating until they finished high school." Now, based on their academic and personal achievements, Fasika and Tinsay Woreta, her identical twin daughters, have won graduate-study scholarships worth $400,000.
