Destinee MonroeEdit

Destinee Raé Monroe (born June 16, 1994)[4][5][6][7] was described as the "rock girl" of the group. Her symbol was a star because when she was little she had something in her eye and her mom said it was a star.[8] Her signature color was blue. She's the oldest sister. Destinee's hobbies include singing and playing guitar, violin and piano.[9][10]

Paris MonroeEdit

Paris Quinn Monroe (born January 9, 1996)[4][5][11][12] was described as the "princess" of the group, and her symbol was a crown, which she said she loved as a fashion statement.[8] Her signature color was pink. She's the youngest sister. She also plays the piano.
