Robbie Novak (aka Kid President)
By Mel Bennett.
Think about what you were doing as a 9 year old.
Perhaps you were spending lots of time riding your bike, playing sport or struggling to grasp fractions. How many of you can say that you were giving the world a pep talk about not being boring and meeting the President of the United States of America?
Well Robbie Novak can!
With the support and assistance of his family this captivating and inspiring kid, as his alter ego Kid President urges viewers of his now viral YouTube videos with catch phrases such as “to make the world awesome” and to “treat everybody like it’s their birthday” every single day.
Kid President began in mid 2012 as a collaboration between Novak and his older brother-in-law, Bradley Montague to share hilarious seeds of wisdom with their family and friends to enjoy. Little did they realise that the messages in their homemade videos would resonate with people the world over.
Robbie was born with Osteogenesis Imperfecta or Brittle Bone syndrome, but as his website says “What’s inspiring about Robbie isn’t his condition, but the fact that his condition doesn’t define who he is. In spite of all he’s been through he not only keeps going – he dances.”
