           Twins Deysha and Deyahna Nelson displayed unique aptitudes at an early age.

            By age four, Deysha was dressing up and modeling her outfits for her mom, Tanisha, who sensed then that there was something special about her daughter and that


this gift needed to be nurtured.

            Deyahna would tell her family she was going to build them a house someday and would design their future family home with blocks and Legos.

            Working together, and guided by their mom and grandmother Ruby Conquest, the twins, now 12, have built an extensive resume.

            Deysha is a professional actor and dancer. Deyahna is referred to as the "mini-manager" and utilizes her savvy business skills to keep the girls focused on their endeavors. They balance each other in every way.

            Deysha is modeling, acting, dancing and designing. In addition, she teaches peers, as well as adults, to model, read scripts, and deliver lines. She is also a natural public speaker and has become a spokesperson for notable organizations.

            Pulling together might mean transportation, purchasing gas cards, showing up for events, securing lodging and being flexible enough to change plans at a moment's notice.

            'It is so much that goes into being an entertainer and having a good support system backing you in whatever area they can makes a world of difference.  We are very thankful for all of the love and support we receive," explained Tanisha.

            Deysha's most recent film aired in November, a Netflix movie called "Holiday Rush". She plays Mya.

            Deysha is also in the process of starting DNel talent services through which she will offer classes on modeling and acting.
