Vacation & Birthday trip to the Bahamas (cruise). My sweetie took me to a beautiful restaurant celebrating my birthday. He gave the ring to the waiter and had the waiter offer it to me on a beautiful silver tray. He then asked me to marry him, and of course I said yes. We would like to thank Jamel's brother and sister in law Mike and Leah for having us a wonderful surprise engagement party.

Jamel is currently enrolled in Spartan Health Sciences University, School of Medicine in St. Lucia. Jamel is a member of the Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity.

Jamel and I met at a church prayer circle. I found him extremely intriguing, but I was hesitant to be anything more than just friends however fate and destiny had a different outlook for us, the more I knew of him, the more I wanted to see him and be around him. I just could not get enough of him! Layla and Jamel will live in St. Lucia until he is completed with Medical School. They will still reside in Stone Mountain, GA.
