Sophia and Luiz met in NYC where they were both selected as participants in the 2007 Weill Cornell Medical College Travelers Summer Research Program. As part of the program, all of the participants were assigned roommates. Sophia and her roommate were instant buddies, she also happened to be Luiz’s lab partner and soon introduced him to Sophia. The three of them began sitting with each other in class, as well as sharing lunches and dinners. Shortly after they’d all become friends, the group of three became two. Luiz and Sophia began spending more time getting to know one another as friends; exploring the city and taking many walks and picnics in Central Park. Take a look at their heartwarming engagement shoot. Enjoy!
