Joshua and I finished reading The Whipping Boy by Peter Sis and next week we start reading Charlotte's Web by E.B. White. Yeah, I'm still a homeschool mom that is preparing my child for greatness. #readingisfundamental #books #wednesday #homeschool #reading #comprehension #storytime #above #his #level #authorjrivers #authorsofinstagram #respect
I was on my way to the studio and excited because I have one more episode to film for this season and then I'll be starting the next journey. My goal is to always be in a different position before the next year. #blessed #movingon #authorjrivers #tvshow #authorsofinstagram #turnthepages #chicagoauthor #chitown #sun #shade #smiles #watch #my #feet
Healthy Minds achieve goals! In the same way we watch what we eat we also must watch what we think. Staying positive regardless of what your circumstances look like is imperative for success. #authorjrivers #writer #happy #friday #books #smart #women #read #brain #food #wordstoliveby

One thing most people don't know about me: When I was in 3rd grade I was placed in a Learning Disability program. Some people are more familiar with the terms short yellow school bus, or LD. Truth be told the teachers at the time didn't know how to teach me because I learned differently than most. I tested out of the program and staff admitted that me being in the program was a mistake. I'm the kind of person where if you are teaching me then it has to be fun and interesting or I will get bored, daydream, or create stories in my mind. Yes, there are some students who truly need extra help. However, there are creatives like me who are labeled. Learn the difference! #authorjrivers #creative #artist #different #school #readers #leaders #education #educatedwoman #beautiful #mind #blackgirlmagic #blackgirlsrock
My Mae Mae said she wanted to see Aladdin after I told her how great it was. So I surprised her and got us some tickets. She deserves it and much more! #mommy #daughter #date #wednesday #aladdin #cadillac #palace #theatre #chitown #windycity

It was bring your sister to work day!😂 When my sister @amytmakeupartistry messaged me and said that she was coming through to see me in action, I was excited! And she liked my soft beat which she taught me how to do in one of her one on one make-up tutorials. 😍 From the producers room to comb through details of the show, to the studio, and then our outside photo shoot, I enjoyed every minute of it. #talkshowhost #makeupartist #sisters #mondaynights #television #studio #college #edition #money #scholarships #funtimes #authorsofinstagram #writerofinstagram #blackgirlsrock #blackgirlmagic

(swipe left) The smirk on my face was absolutely unavoidable. I'm honored to work for Chance the Rapper for 7 weeks under his KOK and Social Works program for kids. I had the great opportunity to teach 2 groups of kids how to produce a film from beginning to end. I knew I was going to bring my A+ game and then some. I was excited to learn that Chance loved the movies and it was not expected that the children would have films at the end of camp. I'm truly grateful to even be in this position. At the showcase on Friday I was asked to come back to the program and continue to teach! Praise God! As a matter of fact I taught two programs this summer and was asked to come back and teach both of them on that Friday. Before I left, Judy (the best director ever) asked me to be a part of the parade. It was such a humbling experience. To see someone with a big name still give back on a day that celebrates him is a true example of someone whose love for people is genuine. My weekend was perfect and I'm sure there will be more Great things to come. I'm even more driven then I was this past 7 weeks. Praise God for allowing me to be able to use the gifts and passion that he Blessed me with and to be a Blessing to kids! #chancetherapper #authorjrivers #authorsofinstagram #cpl #chicagopubliclibrary #exciting #weekend #teacher #writer #producer #natural #sunny #blessed #chicago #windy #city
