Ilze Melngailis: Who Is She?

The Melngailis sisters are very different from one another, despite the fact that they were raised in a loving home in Newton, Massachusetts, despite coming from a dysfunctional family.

They’re both really kind people, but while Ilze has never been scared to speak her thoughts or be herself, Sarma has purportedly always had trouble expressing herself.

As a result, when they were younger, the former often had to speak up for her younger sibling, according to the show.

To put it another way, they’ve had their share of ups and downs, but they’ve always managed to keep together.
