Mohammed Sayed, born in Afghanistan, was paralyzed in a rocket grenade attack at the age of five. Innovative and full of ideas, with a desire to help others, Sayed saw the need for a new kind of electric wheel chair. In 2009, Bill Holmes brought Sayed Boston for proper medical attention.
He serves as an inspiration to members of our community, and we invite you to hear Mohammed’s remarkable history.
Sayed utilized a 3-D printer making his wheelchair more effective. In 2015, Sayed was invited to the White House to participate in its highly esteemed Science Fair. While there, he had the opportunity to meet with President Obama.
Referring to himself as ”Wheelchair-Man,” he not only inspires others in wheelchairs, but also raises the consciousness of the able-bodied to the abilities and strengths of these people. He speaks passionately for disabled people. His goal is to both inspire and create opportunities for all people.
