    Two siblings from Bel Air, Maryland had their graduation on the same day, so their brother shot an epic video of the duo to commemorate their achievement.

    Earlier this month, Dawar Aamir, 22, got his Bachelor’s of Science degree in Mass Communications from Towson University, while his sister Neha Aamir, 25, got her Master’s of Science degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Johns Hopkins University.

    It was such a proud day for the members of the Aamir family, who were treated to another surprise when they found out that Neha was the commencement speaker in their graduating class, reports BuzzFeed.

    Neha, who won first runner-up in Miss Pakistan USA back in 2017, revealed that her family only realized she was speaking when they were seated in the VIP seats and watched her walk towards the stage. 

    Neha said they dedicate their graduation to their parents who immigrated with them from Pakistan in 2001 to provide “a better life and more opportunities.”

    The graduates’ brother, 23-year-old Faras Aamir, shot a short video of them posing with their graduation gowns.

    In the clip, Dawar showed off his graduation cap specially designed with an “Avengers: Endgame” theme. Both Neha and Dawar also did a bit of dancing in the end.

    The short clip has since gone viral on social media, with many netizens reacting positively to the siblings’ achievements and their video’s wholesome vibe.

    Faras shared that he has made online content that has been widely successful on social media.

    “That comes with me making candid videos of the three of us on our trips and experiences we share together,” he was quoted as saying.

    “I’m truly blessed to call my siblings my best friends so when my sister told me she wanted me to make a little video for them wearing their cap and gowns together for commencement day, I knew I had to swag them all the way out to show how boss they really are.”

    In 2018, Nera and Faras were both appointed as “Ambassadors of Peace” for the Universal Peace Federation (UPF), an organization affiliated with the United Nations (UN).
