  1. the kid president definitely wins because A) He's adorable and B) The video seemed to have such a positive vibes to it! AH, I can't get over how fricken cute he is and how positive his attitude is toward life irregardless of his condition. But based on the video it seems so simple a fun to make and that its just something they do to have a good time.
    To make the world more awesome I just want be able to make people smile at least once in their day. I'm not sure why but it seems like something that could be self fulfilling for me and more awesome for the people around me because who doesn't like to smile?

  3. Personally, I didn't really find either video very interesting or moving, which is hard for me to say for the fact that I love John Green, and kid president is just so adorable. Neither video seemed to have a very clear meaning behind them. It seemed as though John Green and both kid president and his brother in law were just rambling on to fill time in the videos they were making.
    I don't think I need to create anything to make the world an awesome place, it already is but of course there is always room for improvement. If we all just agreed to be the best versions of ourselves I think the world would improve greatly.

  5. I think the Kid president video wins because I didn't really understand the concept of the other video. He also talked way too fast so it was hard to understand. The kid president video changed my perspective on kids with diseases and how you can deal with things. Even though he looked like a normal kid he has to deal with a harsh disease under that smile that he put on for the whole video. He still has a good spirit and he has such a positive attitude and everyone chooses whether they want to be positive or not. Even if you have a disease or anything in your life goes wrong, you can still have a smile on your face and be in high spirits. I also learned that looks can be deceiving.

  7. Both videos are tied for me. I appreciated the humour and resilience of Kid President, but I could relate to the John Green video better. I like how he can pack so much information into such a short video without it being overwhelming (although I have watched that video several times, so I might have a better understanding of it than if I'd only watched it once). I'm not sure either of them changed my perspective much, but it's cool to see the side of famous peoples' lives that don't get publicized.

    In response to the question “what will you create to make the world more awesome,” I don't know. I think the most important thing to create is community.
    I'd also love to create some music that helps people the way music has helped me.

  9. I liked the Kid President video better because the little kids charm grabbed my attention right away where with the John Green video I just started to get into it near the end.
    The Kid President video changed my perspective a little bit. It showed that no matter what you're going through or what age you are, you can choose to be happy and have that kind of bright, glowing energy that makes other people smile or laugh.
    Making the world more awesome to me can be as simple as making someone smile or making their day better, so I think that's what I will do.

  11. As much as I loved the Kid President video, I really enjoyed John Green's video- he wins. Perspective can really change how you think about your situation. Even if you're having a bad day, or are stuck in a rut of some sort, you should just look at where you were/and or where you're going.

  13. I enjoyed both videos, but if I had to pick a winner I would choose Kid President's video. Even though I felt like John Green's Video spoke a little more.I LOVE kid president's attitude which reminds me of my own perspectives. Along with the fact that his video was more professional.

    “What will you create to make the world more awesome?”- Kid President
    What I plan to do make the world more awesome is help out the gaming community. Whether it's making guides on champions,sharing strategies, or just help make better players/people. That is what I want to do in life.

    I enjoyed the second video, kid president better. I thought the first one was kind I boring and he talked too fast to take in what he was saying. The message of kid president that I liked was that our goals in life shouldn't be making money, they should be to live the most enjoyable life we can live. The video made you think about how other people are being treated and how we can make everyone feel happy and enjoy life.

  17. I enjoyed both videos as I think the kid president is super adorable and makes great points, and I also love watching John Green's videos. It's hard to pick a winner out of two good videos, so I'm not going to. John Green's video made me think about how you can create something amazing from something not so amazing. You can't be happy without being sad at some point.

  19. my favorite video was “kid president” because he's soo adorable for 1 and also he used humor to capture the audiences attention.

    this video changed my perspective because there are people you look at and think there life is perfect but behind closed doors there is always some type of struggle and hard work to get them where they are . its all dedication

  23. i think the kid president one is the greatest because he shows people that even though (in his case) he can break a bone way easier than others hes still smiling through everything even in the hospital bed he has a great smile on his face. people are so mean and negative nowadays all.you need to do is tell people.to have a fantastic day and that could change someones whole day. i would make a big fake hand on a stick and high 5 everyone! that would totally put a smile on their face. people just need to smile more and be told to have a fantastic day no matter what!

  25. I like the Kid president video the best. It's really inspiring to see how much hope he has even with his condition and you can tell that making these videos gives him joy. I don't know how or what I will create to contribute to this world but I hope someday I can.

  27. I personally enjoyed the Kid President video better. I did enjoy the John Green video but I found that the point was hard to find. I did like the fact that after he went through the tough time in his life, he picked himself and wrote Looking For Alaska. It shows that if people try and get better, they really can.
    I think to make the world more awesome, we all need to focus on being better people. I think if the world was full of happier and more positive people, we could definitely accomplish more
