How We Met: Jeury and I attended the same schools since the 5th grade, but it wasn’t until our senior year of high school that we began dating. We had senior health together and after speaking to my cousin, a close friend of his, and a friend of mine he got my number and gave me a call. Our first phone call was 5 hours long, and that was just the beginning. We’ve been together ever since.

how they asked: Jeury had my parents as well as his, who have retired to the Dominican Republic, record a video congratulating me on my graduation from Kean University to play during my graduation party. Afterwards, he appeared on the screen congratulating me and explaining how excited he is for the future. The video was cut off and both of our rooms entered the room holding a banner that read “Will you marry me?”
