Biography

If your looking for an PASSIONATE, EMOTIONAL SPEAKER with a MESSAGE of HOPE...Michael is all that and MORE!

Michael Ashton's childhood wasn't one that could be classified as living the American Dream.  He, along with his 7 other siblings, were born into poverty living in the projects of New York Cities Westside Manhattan. What so many other children in 1960's middle class America had, Michael never experienced the  love and security that a stable family life provides. At the age of five, due to his parents indigence, he was removed from his parent's custody and placed in an orphanage home on Staten Island. This shattered all hope Michael had for any resemblance of a normal family life.  While at the orphanage home, Michael was then placed in a foster home with his younger brother only to become a victim of "Child Abuse" at the hands of his foster father for over seven years. 

At age fifteen and with the help of social services Michael was able to move into a group home.  The respite didn't last long and he was returned  back to the  foster home. This occurrence  precipitated the actions that would change Michael's life forever.  At the age of sixteen, Michael 's oldest sister excepted full guardianship of him, but that only lasted a few months.  Facing another crossroad in his troubled youth, Michael  ended up homeless, living out of a suitcase and jumping from one menial job to another just to survive for the life he wasn't prepared for. Many adolescents have reached a point like this in their lives and they are faced with choices.  The choices that Michael made at this juncture in his life are what make his story so Miraculous as well as Inspirational. 

Michael had always aspired to live out his childhood dream becoming a police officer. His hope of becoming one has been challenged as he went from one dead end job to another. Michael, remembering his own childhood, endeavored to persevere and never stopped chasing his dream. On November 1st, 1993, he became a Police Officer and served for over 20 years until his retirement June 5th, 2014.  During his years as a Police Officer,  Michael came into contact with hundreds of troubled youths  going through things he is all too familiar with. Broken homes, no  family structure, no guidance, drugs issues, anger issues, and negative interactions with law enforcement in his late teen years.  

His own life experiences has formed in him a heart of compassion for these youths. He is the man today because of the little boy he was yesterday. Michael is an up and coming Inspirational Speaker, traveling throughout New Jersey and New York sharing his "Extraordinary Life Changing Story". His only goal is to Inspire ALL to Never Give Up on themselves.
