First, we are going to formally introduce ourselves. Then, we will each tell y’all a little about ourselves and how we came to (by random chance) find each other.
Hi, I’m Noelle! I was born and raised in Houston, Texas (shout out Beyoncé) and am fortunately still living here! I’m 20 years young with many life goals, but let me tell you how I got here…and no this is not the birds and the bees talk. I was born on November 11th (shout out to all the Valentine’s babies) and 80 days later my parents baptized me a Coptic Orthodox Christian. I grew up unbelievably quiet, to the point where my parent’s worried. Now they just wish I was as quiet as I was back then. I had the best childhood, which I spent with my older brother (if you’re reading this you’re welcome Demitri). My parental units signed me up for almost every sport possible, which is why I am so competitive, and placed me in a private school until middle school which is why I am so smart (jk, currently struggling). I stuck with soccer all throughout high school and now play every intramural sport in college. I’m more focused on getting a workout in than studying which I’m currently working on (kind of). I’m a pre-optometry student, studying to take the Optometry Admissions Test this summer. Afterwards, I’ll apply to schools across the U.S by September. Without God, my family, and this young fella named Alex Ramirez I wouldn’t be who I am and where I am today.
Hello! I’m Alex! Officially, my name is Edward Alexander Ramirez, but everyone calls me Alex (which I prefer because Edward is a bit too serious for my taste). I was born on April 12, 1996 in San Antonio, TX, where I still live. I was baptized Roman Catholic, which I still practice to this day. I would consider my family a huge part of my life because without them I would not be the man I am today. They’ve taught me so much of what I know. I’m graduating soon with my Bachelor’s of Science in Environmental Science, so I’m sort of a science buff. However, I am a huge sports fan and my favorite teams are the San Antonio Spurs and Boston Red Sox. With God, my family, my friends, and Noelle in my life, I would not be the person I am today.
Noelle and I’s relationship is unique yet amazing relationship and we are excited to tell y’all about it! We hope to inspire and encourage y’all to live a spiritual life rooted in the Love of Jesus.
