Local motivational and inspirational speaker Michael Roberts will be in Pasadena this August.
The product of divorced parents, alcohol and drug abuse led Michael Roberts to a suicide attempt by jumping off a 250 foot cliff—but he lived to tell the tale.
Roberts grew up with divorced, alcoholic and abusive parents. Michael turned to drugs and alcohol at an early age, and by 13 years old he was an alcoholic, by 15 he started using drugs and by 17 he attempted suicide. With no discipline and the freedom to do whatever he wanted, alcohol and drugs became his way of life.
His soon-to-be released book will explain the dark paths that he once chose. “This is exactly why I help educate youths and people on this demon-filled disease so they don’t chose those same dark paths,” Roberts says.
