"NJ.com" featured two Pace alums Alexandra Giaccone and Ali Kalu in "For N.J. couple, a love that defied loss from 9/11"

The Giaccone and Kalu families, while culturally very different, are now on the same page: Each of their children has found the perfect mate.

They met at Pace University, in the shadow of Ground Zero, and for years were just friends. Eventually a romance was kindled – Alex smiles in memory of Ali's persistence – and while she had no qualms about his religion, she wasn't sure how that would go over at home.

"NJ.com" featured student Kimberly Caputo in "Making dreams a reality: Non-profit puts N.J. kids on the stage at Radio City"

"NJ.com" featured student Kimberly Caputo in "Making dreams a reality: Non-profit puts N.J. kids on the stage at Radio City"

...Monroe Township resident Kimberly Caputo, 19, learned about the talent show through the local Make A Wish chapter. She has a chronic autoimmune condition that leads to excessive bleeding and bruising. During her many hospital stays, she began writing songs to deal with feeling trapped. Music, she said, "is pretty much my escape." (Her song "You on You" is available on Apple music and Spotify.)

For the talent show, the self-taught guitarist/pianist will sing "I'm Every Woman" with another participant. The goal, she said, is to inspire others as she's been inspired.

"It's a powerful song and we want to spread light and positivity," said Caputo, a Pace University sophomore. "We want it to be about going through life with optimism and standing up for each other."

Caputo's dream is to have a career as a performer and travel the world while also starting a non-profit to help those with juvenile cancer. The Garden of Dreams talent show, she said, is step one.

"I can't even believe it's actually happening. ... This is going to be the biggest crowd I've ever performed for. I think I've performed for 50 people max," she said. "This is a big step, but it's definitely a step in the right direction."
