While pursuing his Master’s degree in social work, Abdul-Rahmaan I. Muhammad was diagnosed with kidney failure due to chronic high blood pressure. Three hours a day, for three days per week in a dialysis clinic provides an individual with a lot of time to think about all the things they wish they could do with their life. In addition to becoming a social worker, Muhammad always had dreams of starting his own business and traveling. By 2001, Muhammad felt like his dreams would forever be on hold until his younger sister Ayesha saved his life by donating one of her kidneys to him. From the moment he woke up from the transplant operation, Muhammad vowed to live his life to the fullest and to chase his dreams.
Muhammad started The Dream Support Network with a purpose to encourage, inspire and support individuals to live the life of their dreams. The Dream Support Network offers workshops, community events, motivational speeches and provides travel opportunities to individuals chasing their dreams.
In 2015, Muhammad formed Dreams Empower, Incorporated, a 501 c3, non- profit organization with the goal of strengthening the community by equipping dreamers with the skills, exposure and knowledge to live the life of their dreams. The signature programs of Dreams Empower are, Ice Cream for a Dream and the Dream Chaser Program.
Muhammad received his Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from Tougaloo College and received his Masters in Social Work from Clark-Atlanta University. He is a brother of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Incorporated and a member of The National Association of Black Social Workers. Muhammad is married to his beautiful wife, Dayeshell and is the proud father of three children, Aminah, Amirah and Amir.
