Robby Novak (aka Kid President) has developed a huge following as he spreads his message to “be more awesome.” I was interested in learning more about the motivation behind these videos, so I did a little research. Turns out that the Kid President campaign is a simple collaboration between Novak and his brother-in-law, Brad Montague. Their aim? According to their website, “to create something that makes people happier than they were before they clicked play.”
It just so happens that Robby also has Osteogenesis Imperfecta (a brittle bone disorder) and has suffered from over 70 breaks during his nine short years of life. But they keep his medical condition on the down low. It doesn’t define who he is, they say. And more importantly, it doesn’t stop him from dancing or running or doing his part to share a little love and joy with the world.
