Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, and this time last year I shared a week’s worth of love stories featuring some of our Seeple. I’ve teamed up with Columbia Alumni Association again to bring you even more SIPA-centered love connections. So check back every day this week to read our newest love stories. Up first, something short and sweet:

Caroline and Kieran’s love story

I met my husband Kieran Clarke (copied) at Columbia as we were both doing our MPA. After spending 1 year in my home town in Paris, he came to NY where we met and started dating quickly. Him from Australia, I from France, who would have thought? 4 years later, we live together in Geneva and have been happily married for a year.

SIPA was as much an amazing experience for our career as for our love life 🙂
