Another important message that Robinson told Forbes was the significance of reclaiming your power. Some of Robinson’s fans and followers were surprised to hear the celebrity had experienced her own “me too” moment. While working for a station in Detroit, Robinson found herself being subjected to physical advances made by the owner. When she made it clear that she wasn’t interested, this resulted in her receiving a demotion. In Robinson’s Forbes’ feature it becomes evident how easily this traumatic event could have derailed Robinson’s dreams and career, but, luckily, she was able to persevere.

The unsettling reality behind Robinson’s “me too” moment is that there was nowhere she could turn to for professional help and assistance. As the celebrity explained, “There was no recourse for me—no HR department you could report to.” However, just because there was no way for Robinson to address the issue did not mean she was going to stand for it. The star went on to explain that one day she left for lunch and simply never returned. 

She continued to fight for and earn the opportunities that eventually put Robinson on the map. With a net worth of around $2 million, it definitely seems like Robinson knows what she is doing. Though it is hard to think about the situations and circumstances she faced in the former years of her career, Robinson never stopped chasing her dreams and is an excellent inspiration for so many. Looking ahead, it is likely that Robinson’s fans and followers won’t be disappointed.
