Congratulations Leslie!

Several years ago I was lucky enough to land an assignment from USAID; create a video about Leslie Hawke.  She was receiving their "Outstanding Citizen" award for her amazing work with Roma women in Romania.

I saw today that she recently got married.  Congratulations Leslie.
