Since late 2012 Kid President and his team www.soulpancake.com, a group of viral video virtuosos, have started a blog and posted a series of inspirational videos on a mission to "make the world less boring". The ten year old hailing from Henderson, TX has become a YouTube sensation. There is no denying the lovable comedian and motivational speaker. From his tiny oval office he reminds us of the candid wisdom found in children's observations of the world. His age appropriate outbursts ("Not cool Robert Frost!") resonate with messages that can motivate all those who are young at heart from ages 2 to 102. Visit his blog at www.kidpresident.com/
Adding impact to his mission to inspire, Robbie was born with a condition called Osteogenesis Imperfecta, or "Brittle Bone syndrome". Yet, his spirit is unbreakable and optimism shines through in every address. He is the son of David, Freed-Hardeman University staff member, and Laurie Novak. The videos are produced by Robbie's uncle, Brad Montague, who directs the university’s efforts in social media. Take 3 minutes and do yourself a service. Watch my favorite, his breakout video, below.
All hail the child chief! Let's rally around this young man on his quest to follow "the road that leads to awesome".
