He has also participated in various legal clinics, including one serving indigent clients in danger of being evicted from their homes.
The jazz lover, who also admits to being a bit of a bookworm, is looking forward to marrying his sweetheart in a classic ceremony with a reception that is filled with laughter, dancing, cake, champagne, of course jazz, and the couple's closes family and friends.
The couple met through an AmeriCorps program one summer doing work at the same Cincinnati nonprofit that provided assistance for those with health challenges. The cause was one that hit close to home for Princess. After losing her father and trying to care for a disabled mother, Princess admitted she hadn't been looking for love, but found it, none-the-less, in Gabriel as they spent more and more time working together.
"Falling in love with Gabriel was a fresh breath of air," explained Princess. "He brought happiness into my life after I had experienced so much loss and sadness."
Less than a year into the relationship, Gabriel proposed one muggy June evening in 2008 alongside the Ohio River as they gazed over the Cincinnati skyline. Their education and passion for public service, however, has remained their priority. With the debt they accumulated between the, they knew they had little chance at any kind of wedding in the company of their beloved friends and family.
