Florian Roderberg and Inci Oyku Yener on their wedding day.

The start of something beautiful

When FLORIAN RODERBERG saw INCI ÖYKÜ YENER, MMidEast & Cent Asian Std (Hons) '14 at Burton and Garran Hall during an exchange semester, he knew she would change his life forever.

September 2012. I was standing in the Burton and Garran Hall kitchen when a young lady entered the room.

She made my jaw drop and made me feel guilty.

The first reaction comes from her stunning beauty, while the second comes from the piercing look in her eyes.

From that point on, I run into her - and I am into her - quite frequently. However, no words are exchanged.

My shyness doesn't let me talk to young women.
