7 hours ago - Aneesha says: I’m from Hyderabad, India. I was doing my studies in England and finished my first degree there. I chose Michigan Tech because I was interested in civil engineering. My friends also applied because we wanted to be together. It was the only university I applied to. 💛🖤 Vivek was wearing a yellow jacket when I met him in the fall at the MUB bus stop. Anyone would have noticed him. I was a webmaster of the Indian Students Association and there was an open position for secretary. We interviewed Vivek for the position. He and I started spending more time together. Then we started planning Diwali night and spending a lot of time together. We have graduated and are working now. I work in Indianapolis for Wantman Group Inc., a four-hour drive from Vivek. It’s a really good job I couldn’t say no to. But it’s difficult living in different states. 💛🖤 Vivek says: I’m from Chennai in southern India. Michigan Tech was the best university I got admission to in the US. One of my schoolmates from back home was going there, so I knew it was a good school. My major was electrical engineering. I work for Electrocraft in Ann Arbor now. 💛🖤 I remember the first time seeing Aneesha and realizing she was a new person on campus. I was interested in talking to her from the moment I saw her. But I was also nervous. We became friends first. The first place we went together was the grocery store, actually. We took the shuttle. It sounds cheesy now, but it was a really nice time. Our first official date was to Marquette. We ate at a Chinese restaurant. I booked a Zipcar and had to rush back because I forgot about the time limit on the car. I got a speeding ticket on our first date—we will never forget that! 💛🖤 Proposing marriage isn’t the same in India. It’s understood that when you say ‘I love you,’ you intend to get married. We got engaged recently in our traditional way. We aren’t sure of what will happen in our future . . . there are no set plans yet. #mtuhumans #michigantech #huskylove
