Manny and I first met in Mississauga, ON. He is originally from Hong Kong and was working in Canada as a jewellery designer. Needless to say, it was love at first sight. We moved to Hong Kong together after only three months of knowing each other.
While living overseas, I taught English and Drama and he continued his jewellery designs. We were engaged on December 24, 2015. After a year and a half of living in Asia, we moved back home to Canada and wedded on September 22 2018. It was the perfect day as our families came together from different parts of the world and embraced our cultures (Italian/Persian and Chinese). We are now partners in love and in business as we formed our own jewellery company, “Mandia”
