Alma and Jesse met during their NYSC in 2010 and their love has blossomed ever since their first meeting!
It has been a beautiful journey for the couple who are getting ready to walk down the aisle in a couple of months’ time.
Here is an excerpt from Jesse’s love story
I still remember very vividly the first day I saw Alma. It was on NYSC Camp in 2010. I was standing in a queue waiting to be paid our small NYSC ‘allowee’ lol… just when I noticed a very bright (oyinbo) girl in the typical white T-shirt and shorts camp attire walking towards the queue and she didn’t have a care in the world and was completely oblivious to what was really happening. I thought she was pretty, quiet and I would say she actually caught my attention and truly had me curious.
The following morning as I walked towards our platoon for the morning parade I saw her standing just a few feet away. We were both in the same platoon! Felt amazing. There was something about her that got me excited and wasn’t so sure why. So I made up my mind I was going to talk to her…but hey it was just reflexes at the time. I wasn’t even sure when I found myself in front of her and she immediately smiled at me and I introduced myself and we got lost in conversations with details I can’t even remember now. She made a very good first impression and our friendship began from that day. So you can imagine, I had no idea I had just met the woman that I would later call my wife (blushing). How could I have known right? And indeed, since camp we remained such good friends.
