Leslie and Brendan met while serving as Community Health Volunteers in Malawi from 2005-2008. Both of their villages were in the Northern Region and relatively close to one another, about a day's travel. They started working together on projects and inevitably fell in love. Now both are finishing up masters' degrees, and will be getting married this July. Brendan proposed to Leslie in front of the Malawi Embassy in Washington DC as, "It was as close as he could get to taking her back to where they met."
