How they met
Salim and Latrena met in May of 2010 at a Tex-Mex restaurant in Arlington, TX called Gloria's. Salim came to Texas that weekend to look for an apartment before making his transition from Appleton, WI to Dallas, TX for work. He was headed out to dinner with one of his line brothers, Christopher Walker to meet his friend, Tiffanie, who just so happen to be Latrena's best friend. Tiffanie, in learning of another male invited guest called Latrena insisting that she join her so that she would not be alone. Latrena agreed to join Tiffanie for dinner and that is when Salim and Latrena met for the very first time. They instantly hit it off at dinner and before leaving for the night Salim had asked Latrena if she could be his official tour guide and help acclimate him to the city once he returned back to Dallas. Latrena agreed and the rest is history!!!
