Undergraduate Commencement 2005
During the 2005 undergraduate commencement, my boyfriend Louis was sitting in the last seat of his row. We were both graduating with computer science degrees, and I was also getting one in literature with honors. When I walked past his seat on my way to the stage, I paused to wave, and he kissed my hand.
I felt so lucky to share graduation with someone who had been by my side, doing the same work. We were together for 16 years after that, until he passed away.
