Shawna and Leon
How We Met
We met online in Jan 2013. Leon’s from Calgary, Alberta and I’m from Toronto, Ontario. I go to medical school in the Caribbean and I went off to school about a week after he messaged me online so we chatted on whatsapp and facetimed daily for 5 months. He flew to meet me after I came home after my semester in May 2013. It was an immediate love!
How He Asked
Leon flew to visit me in Antigua in October 2015 and I took him to the best spot on the island to watch the sunset. We were taking some selfies and he was shaking the whole time. He asked a man to take some photos of us and that’s when he got down on one knee. We had about 200 people clapping and cheering for us. It was the best moment of my life!
