I have made my decision to pursue my Bachelor's Degree in Web Design Interactive Media at, The Art Institute of Pittsburgh.


This program gives me a great opportunity to excel in the Art World. Web Animation, Graphic Design, Typography, designing Business cards, fliers, brochures, and websites which is the area I want to focus on furthering my education in.  I have the enthusiasm, skills, work ethics that it takes to make The Art Institute of Pittsburgh call me a proud student and future graduate.


With my hectic schedule, this would be a great way for me to pace myself and learn about Web Design on my own time. Taking the online classes will help me stay focused with what I am interested in and what I want to pursue in my career. I have successfully completed a few courses at Montgomery County Community College, in Maryland, on Digital Photography and Graphic Design.

Salaam!

I received this note from a friend. I would like to first thank him for such a beautiful note and apologize to cut and change his note.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
It would be hard to find someone that has not witnessed the atrocities of this past week. Everyone from CNN to E News Daily, has covered some aspect of the recent election events in Iran. All eyes have been glued to the TV as this past weeks events have unfolded before our very eyes. [You can find much more on Facebook, Youtube, and Twitter]

Some of us are scared. Some of us are sad. Some of us are worried. Some of us are frustrated. Most of us are angry.

ALL OF US ARE IRANIAN!


The violence towards the people of Iran is not anymore an Iran issue or an Iranian concern. It is a World issue. It is a World concern.

People lie.
Politicians lie.
Numbers DON'T.

Over 200 killed. Over 1000 severely injured. A whole country in fear.

The truth is everywhere. It is on CNN, Fox News, BBC, and YOUTUBE. It is on Twitter headlines, Facebook Statuses, and posted on Myspace pages. You don't have to look far to see the truth. You actually have to go out of your way not to see it.

I did. I went out of my way. I almost broke my neck turning my head. Sitting comfortable in my chair. Trying not to pay attention. Too comfortable to be bothered. Then by accident or maybe even by fate I saw.

Changing the channel:
I saw into the eyes of a student being batoned to death in front of his mother. I saw the fear in the eyes of a man walking his daughter home from school. I saw terror in the eyes of a young girl speaking her mind. I saw the truth.

I realized my chair was no longer comfortable. That i was tired of sitting down while others stood up. I had to stand up too. I had to stand for something. We have to stand together. United we stand. Divided we fall. We have fallen for far too much already.

This is no longer the difference between two political parties.

This is now the difference between Right and Wrong. Between Just and UnJust. Between Good and Evil. Between Humanity and Inhumane.

This is not about Going Green or wearing Black. This is not a fashion show. There is no walk on the runway or model call. This is a call to all people to stop running and stand for something to stand for someone. To take action and help change.

THIS needs to start somewhere. THIS needs to start sometime.

Why not HERE ?!
Why not NOW ?!

Most of us are not smart enough to have a hidden political agenda. Most of us are not "in it" to overturn this or return that. Leave the politics to the politicians.

The message is simple: NO MORE KILLING PEOPLE. NO MORE VIOLENCE.

It doesn't matter if you speak Farsi or not. I am sure we can all understand that.

But we must talk together, work together, stand together, be together as a community. Its not coincidence that if you add the word COMMUNICATION + UNITY = COMM UNITY. Our COMMUNITY must come together now when we are needed most though it sometimes feels that it matters least. Every little bit helps. Every single person counts.

There has been enough arguing this past week to last a lifetime. Lets not argue over petty differences, political views, religious ideologies, and pretty clothes. Lets talk about the fact that people are dying and injustice is taking place.

There has been enough fighting this past week to last two lifetimes. I know most of you are angry. But lets no longer fight amongst ourselves. An eye for eye just leaves the whole world blind. We have already been blind long enough. Peace can only come from peace.

I was told today to take a moment of silence in respect of the 200+ students who have lost their lives. Students who died for speaking up. I say the problem is that we have been silent for way too long. 200+ people died and can no longer speak so WE must speak up even louder on their behalf. Enough is Enough.

Tell your friends. Spread the word. Shed light on this darkness. The night is always darkest before the dawn.

Tomorrow when the sun comes up it will shine proudly down on all of us as we stand together, united. IRAN.
