    If you are twins, I don't think saying you are the same age is necessary.
    Please be aware that I'm neither a native English speaker nor a teacher.

    We cannot help you with your essay if it is homework and it will be marked. That would be unfair. Do the best you can and after you get it back from your teacher, you can ask us for help if you don't understand your teacher's corrections.

    Please see my corrections to the rest of your post in red. If you are writing an essay, it's important to remember the rules of written English:

    - Start every sentence with a capital letter.
    - End every sentence with a single appropriate punctuation mark.
    - Always capitalise the word "I" (first person singular).
    - Use full English words ("pls" is not a word).

    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
