57-year-old Suzanne Isaac of Sketty, Swansea and her daughter Melissa, 22, graduated from the same university on the same day where they were mistaken for sisters despite 35-year age-gap.
All through their time at the University of Swansea in Wales, the duo looked so much alike that students mistook them for siblings rather than a mother and daughter, despite having a huge age difference between them.
‘We have people thinking that we are sisters – very flattering for me but I’m not sure what Melissa thinks of it. ‘As she has grown up she is getting more like me,’ Suzanne said.
According to reports, the mother-of-two began her part-time degree course when Melissa was 16 and was delighted to get a first in psychology and sociology at Swansea University.
While her daughter, who graduated with a 2.1 in English Language, took a year out after school to go travelling before starting her studies.
Surprisingly, the pair had no idea they would end up graduating on the same day.
Suzanne’s mother Joyce Hughes, 91, who attended their graduation, said: ‘It must be good genes.’We haven’t had any work done either so I can brag about that.
‘I wasn’t even sure I wanted to go to the ceremony but as soon as I found out it was the same day as Melissa then I had to go. ‘We had no idea whatsoever that we would end up graduating on the same day,’ she said.
