I met my husband in Walmart.
I was still new to the United States. I was in my late 20s and moved to Des Moines to be near my brothers after graduating from one of the most prestigious universities in Pakistan. I had a master’s degree, but I still wanted to know why everyone wants to come to the U.S. for education.
I started taking some interior design classes at the local community college. One day, I went to school, and for some reason, the class was canceled. On the way home, I stopped at Walmart. I just needed toothpaste.
