The Real Wonder Twinz are royal. Their presence in a room demands attention. The identical twin beauties have magnetic personalities that draw you in. Maybe it is the exquisite nature of their beauty. Maybe it is the fierceness of their walks. Or maybe it is the intellect and rich dialogue that they promote through their social media platforms. There are numerous debates about what makes them so special. Anyone who knows them or follows them can agree on the fact that they are indeed extraordinary. Their movement is centered around fashion, faith, body positivity, humanitarianism, sisterhood, and service. The Real Wonder Twinz pursue their passions with such dignity and grace. To know this dynamic duo is to love this dynamic duo. Learn a little bit more about these Miami natives and why I am so enamored by the HerStory that they are creating.
Who are The Wonder Twinz?
Davica and Demetria Williams are Models, Mothers, and Advocates. Before anything else, education was their first priority. Davica and Demetria both have bachelor’s degrees in Psychology from the HBCU Florida Memorial University in Miami Gardens, FL. Both Twins went on to pursue graduate degrees. Davica completed a Master’s in Theology with a concentration in Womanist Ethics and Pastoral Care and Counseling at Morehouse School of Religion’s Interdenominational Theological Center (ITC) in Atlanta, Georgia. Demetria completed a Master of Science in Mental Health Counseling with honors from Nova Southeastern University in Davie, Florida.
Their commitment to education is balanced with sparkling personalities and punctuated by stunning aesthetics. It is easy to become enamored with Davica and Demetria because in addition to being beautiful they do beautiful things. They have lived lives dedicated to mentoring and uplifting others. Each lady will quickly remind you that there is so much more than brains, beauty, and service in their story. The Real Wonder Twinz had to overcome monumental hardships to get to where they are today. Davica and Demetria were victims of sexual violence at the tender age of 3. The traumatic event did not stop them from blossoming. The trials and tribulations of their youth only fueled their passion for empowering others.
The proud Afro-Latinas have developed movements that have helped people across cultures. Many of their efforts focus on helping women throughout the diaspora. The E.S.S.E.N.C.E or the Empowerment, Sisterhood, Safe space, Encouragement, Nurture, Compassion and Empathy initiative is a group focused on healthy weight management. Spirtuality is a major focus of the group and they focus on more than just losing pounds. E.S.S.E.N.C.E concentrates on building self-esteem and self-image through coaching. The Real Wonder Twinz have also launched fundraisers and have helped to raise awareness for the following causes: HIV/AIDS Prevention, Domestic Violence/Sexual Abuse, Teen Pregnancy Prevention, Mental Health, and High-Risk Youth. Davica and Demetria have a heart for mentorship and creating awareness for issues that impact women and children.
How are The Wonder Twinz Defining/Redefining HerStory?
The Real Wonder Twinz have been proclaiming the message of body positivity and self-love before a hashtag or movement was ever promoted on social media. Confidence and embracing different types of beauty has always been a part of their message. They lived their mantra by donning their signature “low boy” Blonde fades and celebrating their curves. The “not your average size beauties” have sought out and secured some of the most competitive runway gigs in the South. They have spent most of their adult lives proving that beauty comes in every shade and size.
Most recently, Demetria has been spreading awareness for a rare auto-immune disorder, Scleroderma. Scleroderma is hard to diagnose and treat. The auto-immune disease gets little support because it impacts so few people. Demetria and Davica took their fight for Scleroderma to Capitol Hill and advocated for awareness before Congress. Demetria was diagnosed with Scleroderma and has been fighting many health battles. Her fight for health has not stopped her from modeling and serving. In fact, Demetria launched a T-shirt with the phrase “Don’t stare just pray” to raise money for her Scleroderma battle. Demetria, recently returned to her alma mater Florida Memorial to speak about self-care and making health a priority. Davica and Demetria have also hosted many fundraisers and fashion events to help bring awareness and raise funds for the fight against Scleroderma. Together, The Real Wonder Twinz are an example of sisterly love. They are committed to showing the world that true beauty is exhibited through how you love and how you serve and not just how you look.

Makeup is not only a platform to make people beautiful, it also has the ability to make a difference. This shoot takes you "In the life of the Wondertwinz". Empowered and Soulistic twins who are both fighting for the Different that makes a Difference. This is Deme, she is battling 4 different Auto Immune Diseases. Not only has she gained 70 lbs due to steroids and chemo, she is now confined to an oxygen tank in order to preserve her lungs. Today, she chooses NOT to let the battle define her beauty nor to allow her life expectancy to stop her fight. And Today I chose for my artistry to stand for more than just beauty but also for empowerment and faith. For a war you have no idea how to fight, Don't Stare. Just Pray.🙏🏽 #HelpusfindCure #LetsGoViral #FaithInAction #makeupmakesadifference #AutoImmuneDiseaseAwareness #Scleroderma #WonderTwinzDomination MUA: @mua_ttt_tia Muse: @zaharasmum | @therealwondertwinz Photographer: @joewesley
