We could all be a little more like Rowyn Montgomery.
The 7-year-old from Rhode Island has taken to social media with the goal of spreading messages of hope and positivity.
The idea to create these videos came to Rowyn about a year ago when he was bullied at school. The experience left him determined to let other kids know that they aren’t alone. He also wants to give them a new perspective on what they may be going through.
“I have a unibrow and I used to be picked on because of it. But I don’t care because I’m myself!” Rowyn said. “With bullies, it doesn’t matter what they think about you, it matters what you think about yourself, and it’s good to embrace yourself and tell other people who you are.”
So far, his mom Michelle has helped him upload several videos to YouTube, and they’re already getting so much attention!
“When I make videos, it makes me feel happy that other people can watch them and feel happy,” Rowyn said. “If they’re getting picked on or if they’re shy or something, they can watch the videos.”
Rowyn has covered important topics including anxiety, embracing who you are, and transitioning from first to second grade. No matter the concept, it’s clear that he is wise beyond his years, even giving words of encouragement when it comes to the pandemic.
“Some people have anxiety and stuff especially with this bad virus going on. It’s like a tornado that’s going right through your house!” Rowyn explained. “It’s really horrible with the virus. But sometimes you need to take a step back, breathe into the air, and be focused on just what you’re doing.”
Through it all, Michelle has been more than happy to support her incredible son.
“I’m so glad my little dude makes you all so happy and inspired,” she said. “I am so proud of him and the person he is. Mark my words, he will do wonderful things for this world.”
