Metropolitan Area, the girls immersed themselves in music at a young age. Jakiya later gravitated towards musical theater, and Shaina played guitar and sang. They were also involved in several artist development programs growing up like the DC Youth Ensemble, Arlington Youth Street Theater and attended the prestigious Duke Ellington School of the Arts, where they received rigorous classical training and simultaneously developed a heightened understanding of the world around them shaped by their city.
