These young Kazakh women are cousins, but say they're "more like sisters." When Aikerim left home to study in Los Angeles, her mom came with her and soon fell in love with a man from Pittsburgh. They all moved here, and invited Almira to come join them. 

Almira came to RMU to major in economics and enjoys singing, dancing, ice skating, and reading. Aikerim studied business administration and likes painting and belly dancing.
