Happy uAlentine’s Day! ?
We are featuring a submission from alumnus Joseph Khu, an engineering alumnus with a flair for narration. The office teared a little when we first read his entry! Let’s launch right in:
Joseph met fellow alumnus Angela even before their University days, but their first date was landmarked at the bus stop outside SUSS. It was a cool evening in 2009 as Joseph waited for Angela to end her class. Little did they know this would mark the start of the rest of their lives together.
Angela graduated before Joseph and was a pillar of unwavering support to him. As an engineering student, Joseph would occasionally be called back to campus on weekends for laboratory sessions. On days like these, Angela would patiently wait around SUSS for Joseph to end class. The tables have turned!
They tied the knot in 2012 and welcomed their beautiful first-born Cheryl in 2013 and a handsome Ethan in 2015. Juggling work, school and family meant time sacrifices in the Khu family. But Joseph powered through, just as Angela did before him.
It was 2011 when Joseph attended Angela’s graduation. In 2017, Angela in turned attended Joseph’s graduation. They shot their graduation photo in a studio in 2018, signing a lovely closure of their stint in SUSS.
We’ll let Joseph’s poetic quote conclude our story of the day: It is no doubt, her experience in SUSS and her supporting role to me played a crucial part to my journey towards graduation. She is definitely my ‘uAlentine’.
