As long as university life continues to exist, there will be numerous relationships on campus, of which many are going to end in tears.
For the blissful love stories, there is always that one couple that will push through the toughness, the temptations, the struggles and still say ‘I love you’ to their significant others during and after the campus life with no hesitation or regrets.
Today we celebrate one of such couples: Mr Joseph Ntifo Awuku and Mrs Kirsty Ntifo Awuku. Yes! You read right, they are married!
Kirsty and Joseph
The two love birds met on campus although the first time they met did not exactly go the way Joseph, popularly known as Joe Klass, wanted.
How the journey began: Joe Klass tells the story
“We had just gained undergraduate admission into the University of Ghana, in September 2012. I was to pursue a four-year bachelor course in Economics, Information Studies and Philosophy and Classics, while she also pursued a bachelor’s course in Psychology, Religions and Philosophy and Classics.
“Can you now guess how we met? PHILOSOPHY & CLASSICS did the magic. It was in our first tutorial class when I first saw her. Her demeanour was different, didn’t talk much and looked so reserved.
“I tried so many times (can’t say many enough) to talk to her after tutorials and walk her to her hall of residence, but she was always quick to leave the lecture hall. Strangely, it was as if she was trying hard to avoid me.
“I mustered courage one day and sat by her in class. I introduced myself first and asked of her name. In a sweet voice, she said, KIRSTY, the first time I heard the name. I tried asking further questions but she won’t even look my direction. After that semester, we never met on campus until our second year, when we bumped into each other on campus.
“I didn’t waste time in asking for her number since I was late for a lecture. I later called her and that was the beginning of our love journey. Our love journey wasn’t all rosy.
“The tough times made us stronger and better together while the happy times gave us lasting memories. After six beautiful years, we are now Mr. & Mrs Ntifo Awuku.”
