I met Ti & Joseph in the Mill City area in Minneapolis. I noticed that they were taking pictures of the area and of each other and seemed very happy as they were exploring the area. They both had a vibrant and happy vibe so I walked up and said hello and introduced myself. They enthusiastically agreed to be in my photo project. We walked out near the the street area so we could find some better light and to find a good background to shoot against.
As we talked I discovered that they were best friends and actually knew each other from many years back. They were classmates in the 6th grade living in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. Years later they both had moved to the United States and are now attending college here in Minnesota. They reconnected a couple years ago on FaceBook and the rest is history.
Joseph loves playing the piano and studied music at North Central University, where he recently graduated. He is now getting ready to head to Arkansas for Grad school and studying in their music program. Ti is a PhD student at the U of MN studying microbiology and immunology. She loves to travel and going on hiking adventures. She also likes trying different kinds of food (Indian, Thai, Korean).
What a fun couple, with an interesting story and journey, I was glad to meet them and learn their story. I wish them well in the years ahead.
