Education is very important in all household but especially mine. My grandparents had to struggle to gain their university degree and back then, it was a big deal for a woman to have any education higher than gr. 4.

Surprisingly we also shared interests in music and movies. Surprising because I am a big fan of classical, instrumental music and most of my friends dislike it. So basically our relationship begin with a book.
