I lived at I-House between 2011-2013, while I was studying at Columbia University. Elliot lived at I-House between 2012-2014 while he was studying at Columbia Teachers College. We noticed each other on Broadway while we were both walking back to I-House. "I am not stalking you" I said, when we were not even a minute away from Claremont entrance. "Do you live in I-House?" Elliot asked, and this was our first conversation. 

For about a year, we were apart, I was in Istanbul and Elliot was in New York studying towards his graduation. In September 2014 we moved to China together. We are both teachers at universities in Dalian. We officially got married in August 2016. This summer we will have two wedding ceremonies, one in the USA and one in Turkey.
