A lady identified as Margareté O. Winckler has achieved what is commendable and worth celebrating. The lady graduated from law school in both Sweden and the United States.

She took to her Twitter page to make the disclosure, and congratulatory messages poured in after she tweeted about her achievement.

Briefly.co.za learnt that explaining to a Twitter user how she did it, Margareté wrote:

"I started with my LLM in Uppsala University, Sweden which is 4,5 years. Then in my third year I got a scholarship to Penn State and studied 1 year whilst doing my Swedish from a distance (the thesis and special courses)."

In other news, a pair of Milwaukee twin sisters identified as Arianna and Arielle Williams got accepted into 38 schools - receiving more than $1 million (R17m) in scholarships.

The twin sisters are graduating seniors at Dr Howard Fuller Collegiate Academy, with Arianna currently ranked the top student in her class and her sister close behind.

The duo are waiting to be officially named valedictorian and salutatorian of their school.

Arianna told WDJT:

"This is not really a completion for me, I'm just getting started."

Her sister added:

"Yeah, I feel partially relieved."

They have both been accepted into 38 universities but they chose to attend Marquette University in Wisconsin where they will be studying nursing.

Their school administrator, Judith Parker, said:

"We couldn't be more proud of their growth, choices and their ability to persevere with joy in the face of obstacles.
"They have travelled, organised community service projects, met Michelle Obama and represented our school inside of our walls and throughout our city. We are proud of them and the entire Class of 2020 and excited for the next chapter in their lives as they take this same drive to college."
