‘Everybody's Got Something’ written by Robin Roberts are memoirs of known presenter and reporter who in recent years unfortunately because of sad reasons was not present in the media, due to her severe illness from which, however, she managed to recover.
Afterwards Roberts not only returned back to normal life, but she learned a lesson from what she went through realizing that there is no reason to hide anything from your life because beauty of life is something most valuable and there is no reason to spoil it with lies or politically correct embellishments.
Robin Roberts born 1960 earned a degree in communication from Southern Louisiana University, taking her first job as a sports reporter and anchor for a Mississippi local station. The national recognition she will achieve at the very beginning of 90s when she started working on ESPN, and a few years later she started appearing as a guest reporter on Good Morning America. In a short time Roberts became a highly valued and loved by the audience thanks to her style, but unfortunately due to breast cancer chemotherapy she started to suffer from rare blood disorder.
Roberts won the battle for her life, and that fact gave her the strength to publicly confess the great secret that she has kept for ten years, about her gay sexual orientation.
Except that in her book Roberts told her life story, speaks about obstacles that she encountered and successfully crossed, not giving up no matter how difficult it was, through her whole book the gratitude she feels for her parents constantly can be felt – “Thank you, Momma, thank you, Daddy, for GIVING me wings and encouraging me to fly high, I miss you both so much. Not a day goes by that I don’t think about you. I draw upon the lessons you lovingly taught me about faith, family and friends. You thought me to be true to myself. Momma, I remember what you said, “God loves you because of who God is, not because of anything you did or didn’t do.” As always, Momma, you get the last word.”
‘Everybody's Got Something’ are well-written memoirs, which do not burden with their length, offering many interesting episodes in which will enjoy not only fans of this excellent presenter. Therefore, recommendations for this book should go not only for those who feared for the Roberts fate, but also to those who enjoy reading faction literature in general.
