Faisal (Fay-zl) is an undergrad at Suffolk University, where he is earning his bachelors in business. And in his free time, he enjoys to paint beautiful tapestries–He considers painting as an avid hobby.
Faisal first began painting when he was a little kid. And once he a picked up a paintbrush, he could never put it down.
He truly believes that art comes from within, and if you have a strong conviction in painting, he says, go out there and just do it because there is no right or wrong way to paint. “It’s art!” he says.
Faisal has future aspirations to one day open his vey own art gallery. And until then, he continues to showcase his artwork anywhere and everywhere in Boston, Ma.

Celeste Ribeiro-Myers is an all-made East Bostonian, co-chair of the NoEastieCasino Movenment, and a champion in grassroots organizing and community service.
I have the pleasure of knowing Celeste through her father John Ribeiro Jr, who I’ve worked for as his Campaign Manager. Her father laid down the foundation of her active service in the community and taught her the most important lesson in life: “To talk with your feet and not with your mouth.” She has taken a stand against outside corporate forces like Suffolk Downs and has pledge to not receive any outside money from any political parties such as the Republican Party or the Democratic Party. She tells me that she represents no party except for The People of East Boston Party.
Her biggest priority as candidate for State Representatitve is Clean Neighborhood Development. According to Celeste, what makes East Boston so great is its inclusive and diverse neighborhood where all are welcome to start out, build families, and thrive together. Her greatest accomplishment was co-charing a movement called “NoEastieCasino” which stopped a huge corporation (Suffolk Downs) from building a casino in their backyard. Not only did this serve as a huge indicator of her leadership, but her commitment to the people East Boston that no outside business force can control their community. In my opinion, she took down Goliath when nobody thought was possible.
This High Priest of ours understands our weaknesses, for he faced all of the same testings we do, yet he did not sin. (Hebrews 4:15 NLT)
If you think Jesus doesn’t know your suffering, then think again. Be humble and continue to seek HIM in your times of loneliness. Remember that He paid a higher price than anyone one could ever imagine, and yet he never sinned.
“Today when you hear his voice, don’t harden your hearts as Israel did when they rebelled, when they tested me in the wilderness. There your ancestors tested and tried my patience, even though they saw my miracles for forty years. So I was angry with them, and I said, ‘Their hearts always turn away from me. They refuse to do what I tell them.’ So in my anger I took an oath: ‘They will never enter my place of rest.’”
Be careful then, dear brothers and sisters. Make sure that your own hearts are not evil and unbelieving, turning you away from the living God. You must warn each other every day, while it is still “today,” so that none of you will be deceived by sin and hardened against God. For if we are faithful to the end, trusting God just as firmly as when we first believed, we will share in all that belongs to Christ. (Hebrews 3:7-14 NLT)
Like a good son to his father, always listen and never harden your heart. God loves you and what he says is perfect; he has feelings too. We will never understand his great plan, but that doesn’t mean we harden our hearts nor lose our faith in HIM.
Don’t Harden Your Hearts Today! Live and Be Faithful to God till The Very End.
As we pay our respects to those who have lost their lives thirteen years ago, and those who are giving their lives everyday for the sake of freedom, let us not forget our stance against terrorism and how we will never cower in its face.
Remember that it was 9/11 that truly divided our great nation apart and not the petty politics that we see today. It’s time to put the fingers down, link arm-and-arm in the fight against terrorism.
We are American Strong!
God Bless America and May God Continue to Give Rest and Peace to Those Who Are With Us In Spirit!
Remember to take time today, to pause and pay your respects.
In this video, I’m having lunch at a well-renown restaurant in Boston called “Saigon Hut” while explaining my plans for the fall, which might be my last video till December.
This fall I will be starting my law school education at Suffolk University. During that time I will keep blogging but only for a limited time. I will be posting weekly spiritual digest (almost every sunday), radio talks and video interviews from UR Business Network, and occasional miscellaneous blogs.
I also plan to create a new blog on my site called “Prince’s BriefCase.” In law school, I will be doing a ton of case briefs, so what better way to enhance my learning then to blog about law cases. So look out for that!
Again Thank You for all of your support, and please browse through my website for political editorials, headlines news, pictures, and interviews.
Since God chose you to be the holy people he loves, you must clothe yourselves with tenderhearted mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience. Make allowance for each other’s faults, and forgive anyone who offends you. Remember, the Lord forgave you, so you must forgive others. Above all, clothe yourselves with love, which binds us all together in perfect harmony. And let the peace that comes from Christ rule in your hearts. For as members of one body you are called to live in peace. And always be thankful. (Colossians 3:12-15 NLT)
Live a new life and make allowances for people’s faults. God has forgiven you so must forgive others. When I think of starting a new, I think of butterflies. Butterflies symbolizes love, peace, and rebirth among other things.
So today be thankful, forgive others, and fly like a butterfly.
This week I will be providing little content as possible. I am in the process of getting ready for law school. In the meantime, please visit my previous posts and YouTube videos, which you can subscribe to by clicking here.
Next week, I will be making a public announcement via YouTube about my agenda for the fall–including my website, “Prince’s Daily Journal.”
