“I think we all need a pep talk.”

Those are the opening words from a video by the “Kid President” – a nine-year-old 3rd grader from Tennessee.

His real name is Robby Novak, and his videos have been seen by more than 5 million people. He’s inspiring people to make “the world awesome” and to “be a party.”

Novak and his brother-in-law Brad Montague said they were surprised about the success of the video that has now gone viral.
