Hi! My name is Robin Williams. I was born in Chicago, Illinois on July 21, 1951.
I was a very shy kid in elementary. I didn't really overcome this until I was in my high school drama department. I was told that I was pretty funny by friends.
I was in a men's college until I enrolled into a school in New York. After I moved to New York, I befriended and became roomies with Christopher Reeve. Some of you may know him as the Superman from 1978.
I actually was a street performer before I got popular; I was a mime. After this, I started to do movies. I had my own TV show and got famous after a string of succesful movies in the 80s and 90s.
After I became popular and made a name for myself, I struggled. I have been struggling with addiction depression since the late 70s. It was hard for me, I was having a tough time with my first wife. You can search that up if you want.
On August 11, 2014, I committed suicide. I was struggling from a deep depression and showed sign of dementia after my death. It was very hard for me in my last moments. I had been struggling with bankruptcy on top of my mental health conditions. Do NOT do what I did if you have the same problems I had or even problems in general. I beg you not to. If you or a loved one is struggling from depression, contact the suicide hotline number on the right: 1-800-273-8255
