“I want to personally thank you for visiting Ft Carson and supporting our Domestic Violence Month kick-off event. I thoroughly enjoyed our conversation and listening to your life lessons as a domestic violence survivor. I know everyone was truly touched by your speech, presence and accomplishments. It was great to meet you – you’re welcomed here any time. HOOAH! Steadfast and Loyal!”

Joseph Anderson Major General, U. S. Army Commanding ​Ft Carson, CO

“Ms. Muhammad’s presentation was not only remarkable, but unforgettable. The room was spell-bound as Ms. Muhammad detailed her harrowing personal experience with domestic violence. The room acknowledged her humor and funny anecdotes with laughter but still mourned her nightmare as her story pierced through every heart and every soul present, causing sharp intakes of breath and at times, deep sighs and silent sobs. We absolutely enjoyed having Ms. Muhammad share in the evening with us and would not hesitate to have her return to speak again in the very near future. We strongly recommend her to speak at other organizations that represent this field.”

K.E. Victoria Grey-Allen, Executive Director, Sarah’s Refuge

“Ms. Muhammad’s professionalism and desire to be an effective speaker was evident before, during and after the event. She unselfishly agreed to make herself available to numerous media requests and was willing to adapt her schedule to fit the needs of our community. Not only did Ms. Muhammad provide a heartfelt and impactful keynote presentation, she made it her personal mission to connect with as many people as possible in a one-on-one setting both before and after her keynote presentation.”

“Ms. Muhammad’s presentation was spectacular – it was engaging, honest, and very enlightening as she shared her personal experiences. She presented some of her life scenarios with humor and displayed compassion at the same time. Ms. Muhammad also provided multiple responses to questions from our audience during the conference. Her answers were heartfelt and considerate to the participants sharing their personal experiences. Her presentation was two hours long, however, our participants did not grow tired of listening to her resilient experiences that involved her family. This program was designed for mental health professionals, psychologists, social workers, counselors, law enforcement and military affiliates. We truly enjoyed having her presentation and would be pleased to have her return to speak again in the near future.”

La-Lisa Hewett-Robinson, Director, Mental Health of Southern Regional Area Health Education Center

“Please accept my sincere thanks and appreciation in the Joint Base Myer-Henderson Hall Domestic Violence Awareness Month Community Partner Breakfast. Everyone was captivated by your story. As you spoke one could feel your fears, understand your disappointments, empathize with your children, and marvel at your strength to move beyond the abuse to help others. Your courage in sharing the very personal details of your experiences significantly increased our awareness and understanding of the complexities involved in domestic violence. Hearing this message from the voice of a survivor was essential to the learning process. Your message touched us in a special way and will continue to touch others as we talk about the issues you raised for individuals and our community. You have truly turned your tragic circumstances into an opportunity to help other victims of emotional and verbal abuse, a topic often overlooked.”
