When Shon was a young boy, his parents took him to the best college in India and told him that he would go there one day. Shon, driven and determined even then, worked hard and made that goal a reality. Once he set his mind on something, he would do everything in his power to make it happen.
After graduation, Shon was preparing to attend medical school when a beautiful fellow student caught his eye. She, too, was preparing to enter a career in medicine. They connected over a shared passion for helping others and the understanding that there is nothing more important than family. Just like that day when he was a young boy, when Shon met Sonal he knew he had found a new goal - to make her his wife.
So when Shon went to America to begin his studies at Yale, he didn’t let the distance between them become an obstacle in their relationship. They kept in touch and soon Sonal joined him when she became a Yale medical student as well. It was on that beautiful campus in New Haven that Sonal and Shon fell in love, in the midst of the coursework and demanding schedules.
They returned to the campus this summer to exchange their vows and become husband and wife. They walked the same walkways they have so many times before, only this time it was different. Now, all those dreams they had for the future together were suddenly so much closer than they ever were before. And, as he walked down the aisle with his Sonal as he knew wife, Shon felt that same surge of pride he had so many years before - the pride of a man who knew he had just fulfilled an incredible dream.
