When it was time to move into their new home, Bencheikh enlisted the help of her father to get the apartment sorted. The girls were excited for another year of college as best friends. Then, Jannatipour decided to FaceTime her mother, which is when the two students made an amazing discovery.
The pre-meds knew they already had a pretty special bond, but nothing could prepare them for what they learned about each other that day. It all started when Jannatipour introduced her mom to Bencheikh’s dad during the video call, and slowly the pieces of the puzzle began falling into place.
According to Bencheikh, the respective parents only talked for a couple of minutes, but it proved to be long enough. When the FaceTime session was over, Bencheikh’s father turned to his daughter’s roommate and best friend, Jannatipour, and asked her one question. But secretly the delighted dad already knew the answer to his query.
