How do you Persevere?
1. Jackie Robinson (Description)
2. Eleanor Roosevelt (Sequence)
3. Robby Novak (Compare and Contrast)
Robby Novak is not like other YouTubers, such as Connor Franta or Zoe Sugg. While most famous YouTubers are seventeen and older, Robby Novak who has taken on the persona of "Kid President" on YouTube is only nine. He is similar to other famous YouTubers in ways such as they both have over one million views on their videos. They are also very different, because most famous YouTubers don't have osteogenesis, which is a severe, chronic bone disease that has effected Robby's life as well as many other people in the world. This means he breaks bones easily and has to have many surgeries. He also has medicine given to him every month at a hospital. With a condition like this, it can be extremely hard to persevere through anything. Somehow, this nine year old from Tennessee has done it, and continues to do it through all of his struggles. Most of his videos are inspirational pep talks, trying to get the viewers to see what they can do to make the world more awesome. Even though he's so early in his career, he truly is making the world more awesome.
