DR. Umar Johnson’s Dream Of Opening School Crushed? His Wife, Career, And More
Dr. Umar Johnson, a certified Psychologist and a Doctor of Clinical Psychology, is one of the many faces in Hollywood that is repeatedly wrapped up in controversies.
As of recent, Johnson had to face many backlashes and was deemed a fraud by many.
Setback On His Greater Plan
Through experience and degree, Johnson wanted to make a change for the people of his community. As a result, in 2014, he planned to open a school named Fredrick Douglass Marcus Garvey Academy (FDMG), specifically for the African-American community.
Johnson’s enthusiasm and support towards the betterment of his community went on to win the hearts of many, and as a result, his initiative to raise $5 million to buy St. Paul College was fulfilled.
However, even after seven years, the school is not yet complete. The frustration of people towards the doctor after having their hopes high is evident on the Internet.
People are not happy with the setback, and those who contributed to the donations have been seeking answers from Johnson. Many believe that Johnson never intended to build a school and deemed him as a fraud.
However, the doctor has his own say on this matter as he feels that the support of people from his community towards his cause is nonexistent.
While giving an interview on Breakfast Club, he stated how his community cares less for education than other communities.
Further, the 46-year-old talked about how the construction of his school is in process and now needs about $300k in electrical and plumbing installation.
Johnson is now adamant on encouraging people from his community to save his cause and donate towards his initiative.
How It All Started?
Dr. Johnson is a doctorate holder in psychology. He gained massive recognition for being a motivational speaker and trying to break mental health stigma.
As an African American, Johnson did not have many opportunities in his life, and it got even more complicated when his religion came to play. He is a Muslim, and growing up, he did not have much. As a result, Johnson learned the value of education relatively early in life.
Growing up with ten siblings alongside his stepmother and father taught Johnson to work hard in life to provide for himself and his siblings.
Dr. Umar, as an ambitious individual he went on to do well in his education and pursued one degree after another.
The thought of the importance of mental health pushed him to complete his master’s degree in Psychology, through which he got the license to practice his doctorate.
