Watch out President Obama because 9-year old Robbie Novak may give you a run for your money with his presidential speeches. The suit-wearing, power tie clad “Kid President” is urging us all “to make the world awesome” and to “be a party.”
Although his speeches are adorable and fun, they are certainly not falling on deaf ears. So far the elementary school student’s latest post titled, “Pep Talk”, has received almost three million views on YouTube.
Robbie, a Tennessee native, is the son of a Freed-Hardeman University member. His older sister is the creative director of the FHU Office of Marketing and his brother-in-law, who helped him produce the videos, directs the university’s efforts in social media.
Robbie, better known as Kid President, releases a new video each week on SoulPancake, a channel made just for topics such as philosophy and spirituality. Robbie also has a website where he blogs and drops knowledge and maintains a Twitter account where he keeps up with his celebrity followers like Jessica Biel.
SoulPancake was signed with OWN in 2010 to develop a series of SoulPancake-themed “shorts.”
