Johnnie grew up in San Jose, in California with his mom, brother and sister. His dad passed away December 7, 2010 because of cancer. This was the first part of his depression.
Johnnie struggled a lot in school cause of him having dyslexia, and for getting bullied for dressing different than the others. He went to therapy for about four years, three days a week after his dad passed away. The therapists used to always check his weight, thinking he was way too skinny.
He went to three different institutions, staying there for a week each; one of them he found scary and out of hand. Johnnie was suicidal during these four years, but he kept on going and eventually got better.
