Big Things Come in Small Packages: Kid President

Are you familiar with "Kid President"? If not, you don't know what you're missing. Kid President, 10 year old Robby Novak, is a Tennessee homegrown bonafide celebrity. So much so that he'll be hosting and reporting at the Google-Netflix pre-party for the White House Correspondents' Association Dinner on May 2.
Robby is an accidental superstar from Henderson, Tennessee who has recorded a series of pep talks ranging from "An Open Letter to Moms" to "Twenty Things We Should Say More Often" which have garnered interest from Barack Obama himself.
Here's the video that was played during one of our teacher in-services which introduced me to the "Kid President" phenomenon.

What is even more amazing is that Robby has a genetic disorder, osteogenesis imperfect, which is characterized by brittle bones that break. He has suffered more than 70 broken bones and 13 surgeries. Robby has steel rods in both of his legs.
However, Robby rather not focus on his personal dilemma but instead be a motivator and cheerleader to anyone he thinks he might be able to reach. In his words, "I don't want to be IN a party. I want to be THE party."

I adore Robby and his "Kid President" videos! What about you?
