Kid President. If there’s one Internet celebrity you should be aware of, it’s Kid President. Known for his inspiring videos and online pep talks, Kid President is a coach, motivational speaker, entertainer and real talk advocate, all rolled into one cute package.
I love his videos because they feed my soul. If I’m feeling down or need to be inspired, I actively search for his words of wisdom (at such a young age), because they pretty much always make me feel better.
According to a note on his official website, Kid President, a.k.a Robby, “has Osteogenesis Imperfecta (OI) a brittle bone condition which has resulted in him having over 70 breaks since birth. What’s inspiring about Robby 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.”
A few days back I stumbled across this gem: Kid President’s 20 Things We Should Say More Often. He goes through a list of phrases, words and terms we should incorporate more often in our daily lives and conversations.
The video made me smile and has strengthened my resolve to lead a more positive life with an open heart. My favourite ones are #18, #16, #12 (my mum says this to me all the time. Hi Ma!), #10 and #8. Oh, and #6. And #4. Okay, I like them all.
