"We met at a place called Speedzone, which is a go-cart place," Octavia tells us. "We never got a chance to ride any go-carts because we talked the entire date until the lights were shutting off and they were closing down. I had never talked to somebody for so long where we didn’t get to do the thing we planned to do."

"When I told Octavia my goals and ambitions she supported and believed in me from that point and never doubted me," says Terrence. "Her support made me realize I could build with her."
