designer and model, Yulia Drummond, moved from her home in Kyrgyzstan to the United States when she was only 18 years old. Modeling in her home country, she met her American husband, a Marine, at an event while he was on tour guarding the embassy. “I went an hour and a half late on purpose,” she explains of their second meeting at a Fourth of July party. “As soon as I walked in, he looked and I thought, ‘I got you.'” Two months later the couple was engaged and heading to Oregon to get married.
