Prince Sefa-Boakye interviews Faisal AlKheriji, Suffolk Undergrad and Painter


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.

ThrowBack Thursday: My Interview w/ Attorney Mark Fischer, Entertainment Lawyer and Copyright Litigator


Every week I post a miscellaneous article/review/blog that I have written in the past, or an interview of an extraordinary individual.

This week’s Throwback Thursdays: My Interview w/ Attorney Mark Fischer, Entertainment Lawyer and Copyright Litigator. 

20131020-124249.jpg

Mark Fischer is probably the most fashionable trendsetter in the practice of law. He is one of few, if not the only person that I have seen, who can sport a sleek contemporary linen suit with a wool square tie (topping it off with a sharp men’s dress hat) at his workplace. You don’t need to remind this lawyer on the latest trends in fashion!

I met Mr. Mark Fischer at a social media conference in Downtown Boston, where I was working as one of many assistants to provide food, drinks, and services to our invited guests. This event housed many social media entrepreneurs who have worked (or who are still working) for well-known television channels: Food Network, Travel Channel, MTV, VH1, etc. And out of the whole crowd stood a man with a light blue suit and a sharp dress hat, which I found to be very uncommon at an event like this.

When I approached him, I asked him where he got his suit from. And his response was: “I got this hand tailored in Brooklyn, New York!” But, what really surprised me was when he told me that he was a lawyer. When I heard this, I immediately took the opportunity to not only share my law school aspirations but my interest to feature him on my website–and it was the best decision that I could have ever made! 

Not only did he answer all of my puzzling questions that I had about the law profession, but he showed me a new way of utilizing a law degree to help others while satisfying your own interests in life!

Thank you Mark so much for providing me great insight behind the law profession–and that little push I needed to apply to Law School!

Today, he continues to represent and work with highly creative and innovative musicians, writers, software engineers, synthetic biologists, and artists.

Weekly Spiritual Digest: Give Him Praise! Praise The Lord!


20140216-144152.jpg

Praise the Lord ! Let all that I am praise the Lord. I will praise the Lord as long as I live. I will sing praises to my God with my dying breath. Don’t put your confidence in powerful people; there is no help for you there. When they breathe their last, they return to the earth, and all their plans die with them. But joyful are those who have the God of Israel as their helper, whose hope is in the Lord their God. He made heaven and earth, the sea, and everything in them. He keeps every promise forever. He gives justice to the oppressed and food to the hungry. The Lord frees the prisoners. The Lord opens the eyes of the blind. The Lord lifts up those who are weighed down. The Lord loves the godly. The Lord protects the foreigners among us. He cares for the orphans and widows, but he frustrates the plans of the wicked. The Lord will reign forever. He will be your God, O Jerusalem, throughout the generations. Praise the Lord! (Psalms 146:1-10 NLT)

“This morning I was awoken by a song of praise in my heart. I did not know where it came but it hit me hard like a shooting dart. My body felt lighter than air and my mind felt more elevated than a chair. It was the Holy Spirit that came into my body and freed the soul that was imprisoned inside my heart of cold.

Give thanks to the Lord today because he always sets the sun in the highest of day. Give thanks to Him today because he is the truth; He cares for orphans and widows too. He never leaves you astray; even when you don’t pray to Him night and day. He is the Lord of great divine and he always makes everything beautiful in His time.

Pray to Him when you are weak but give praise to him when you are strong. Remember that our God is Lord o’er the Heavens and Earth, and there is no man or king on Earth that can represent his worth.”

–Prince Sefa-Boakye; February 16, 2014

This week’s spiritual lesson: Take time to Praise God and let the Holy Spirit come into your life. Let the Holy Spirit come inside your heart, so your soul can break free and soar amongst the stars.

Motivation Mondays: Treat Every Misfortune As A Gift


It’s Monday, the beginning of a new week, and you need words of motivation to start your week off right.

This week’s words of motivation: Treat Every Misfortune As A Gift

In this 3 minute TED talk video, we see brand strategist and brain tumor survivor, Stacy Kramer, give a most touching talk of an unlikely gift that changed her life forever. Stacy does not only do a brilliant job in drawing the audience into her story, but questioning their own motives in life.

When I watched the first few minutes of Stacy’s TED talk, I was emotionally drawn into her story; I really wanted to know what was inside that box. What she described to me, and to everyone, was everything that I ever wanted from life–especially eight weeks of doing absolutely nothing. However, it would not be until she opened the box that I (including everyone else) had to take a step back and question my own motives in life–maybe the misfortunes that exists in our own lives are actually gifts in disguise.

“The next time you’re faced with something that’s unexpected, unwanted and uncertain, consider that it just may be a gift.” –Stacy Kramer

So this week, treat every misfortune as a gift no matter how big or small. Stacy’s gift truly altered her life forever; she obtained everything that most people dream for a lifetime. Although I may not want Stacy’s gift in the size of a golf ball, but I do want what comes with it: adoration and rest.

Motivation Monday: Evolve the Art of Storytelling


It’s Monday, the beginning of a new week, and you need words of motivation to start your week off right.

This week’s words of motivation: Evolve the Art of Storytelling

In this 3 minute TED talk video, we see iPad storyteller and entrepreneur, Joe Sabia, give an inspirational talk on the history of storytelling; and how technology was able to advance it thanks to German author, Lothar Megendoffer. Sabia does not only do a phenomenal job of storytelling (detailing each part of his story with powerful visuals), but an excellent job in conveying his point across.

“The art of storytelling has remained unchanged. And for the most part the stories are recycled. But the way humans tell the stories has evolved with pure, and consistent novelty.”

–Joe Sabia

Stories are what keeps the world spinning. And I am so fortunate that I am able to use my writing, and my website, as a platform to share people’s stories across the world via the web. 

*I invite all of you to check out my “Interesting People” section and read the amazing stories that I have amassed since I first produced my website to the world! 

Thank you Megendoffer for giving me, and the world, the Megendofferitis: to make our stories come to life. If you hadn’t said “Genug ist Genug,” then our stories would have never reached the medium to where it is today.

So this week, evolve the art of storytelling–and catch the Megendofferitis. Instead of sharing your story face to face, grab a phone and video stream your story online and make your story come to life. Utilize social media to make your story (and/or your product’s story) come to life!
