Joseph Robinson has a very unique story, in that he was kicked out of the Kingston polygamy group for questioning authority in how they were neglectfully treating his mother's cancer. While in the Order, he was required to pursue his degree in physics with the intent to have him work in the Kingston labs. After being kicked out, he had the freedom to choose his own career, in which he had the luxury to changed his major two times before HE decided to major in finance. He was able to receive a scholarship that allowed him to continue his education at the University of Utah. He further received assistance through Holding Out HELP in paying for books and providing a host home. In a world of suffering and pain, he found strength and hope through magic. He was able to use magic as a resource to help him emotionally cope as he transitioned out of polygamy. He was also able to use magic to support himself financially, as he hosted magic shows within the community and started the YouTube channel @MagicPranksJohn. In his own words, he shares a little excerpt of his story below, which emits his zest for life.
As you can see, John Joseph Robinson is the perfect example of success. He found a coping mechanism to help him through the struggle out of polygamy. It is not an easy journey. As we have mentioned before, many do struggle; John Joseph has struggled himself, but again that success comes through persevering. Not only has he persevered through his education and career, but he is also sharing his amazing talent with magic by hosting events in the Salt Lake City area.
