A young Ghanaian man, David Dei Awuku, who met his wife Nana Adjoa Hagan Dei on campus at Ashesi University, has disclosed how their love story began.
Recounting the journey of their relationship, David Dei Awuku, revealed he and his wife met on the first day of school.
''We met on the first day of school, she was the first person to arrive at English Bootcamp, a pre-college preparatory program to help bring us up-to-speed with Ashesi’s curriculum. This was in 2009,'' Dei Awuku told outcomes.ashesi.edu.gh.
The former Starr FM employee disclosed they were the only two who had arrived on campus, so naturally, they whipped up a conversation, and after realising they had a lot of friends in common, things sort of begun to pick up from there.

The duo did not exchange contact details till two weeks after their first meeting, he said.
''We had struck a growing friendship by then, and we were already working on something good.''
While on campus during the four-year programme, Dei Awuku and Nana Adjoa Hagan managed to spend a lot of time together, including studying together and being pals with the same circle of friends.
"Maturity was a key component in our relationship when we started going out, we were both only 19, and by the time we were graduating from Ashesi, we were between 23 and 24 years old," Awuku disclosed.
Three years after they graduated from Ashesi University, Awuku proposed to Adjoa and the pair tied the knot in January 2017.
The married couple is now rounding up with law school, looking to be called to the Bar.
As a couple, they try to live every day as a learning experience, including learning to build a family and working towards starting up businesses and perhaps a law practice.
''For now, though, we’re learning more and more about each other every day.''
