Jose Duran '17 and Marlene Buelna '17

Marlene and I had mutual friends throughout high school and college but never had talked or hung out before our final year at the UA. Our last year we began talking more and found out we had things in common than just mutual friends. We even found our second grade class picture for elementary school and knew that through a combination of destiny, similar ambitions, and bearing down, we were meant to be together.

Now we're both alumni working in our respective careers doing our best to advance ourselves. From getting through second grade, to receiving our diplomas together, I can't wait to see what the future has in store for us.
