I really tried to take a nap but the characters in my head won't let me. #yapping #authorjrivers # #writerslife #naptime #naturalhair
We had so much fun in class last night. Look who finally got in front of the camera. It's about time. It was way past my bedtime though. 😔 #authorjrivers #writer #producer #tuesday #nights #naturalbeauty #natural #womenempowerment #womeninfilm #switching #lanes #lights #camera #action #chicago #watch #my #feet
My mom told me not to purchase this book because she already had it. That was a year ago. 😏 I couldn't wait any longer. I remember the first book like I lived it myself. Between all the other work I have been doing I have to squeeze in at least 3 hours a day.😂😂 #reader #leader #authorjrivers #authorsofinstagram #writer #producer #mondaynights #fall #tea #book #blanket #weather

Bittersweet. I just wrapped up Episode 12 which is the final episode for "Turn the Pages" College Edition. This second season was great! Preparing young people and their families for College is something that we need in our communities. We always seem to have College Fairs but we need to make sure that we prepare our children for acceptance and show them how to get those Scholarship dollars and how interning and volunteering helps you make the best choice for your career. If you didn't watch the show you missed two huge announcements but I will only reveal one on social media for now. I am giving away a free gift. Go to www.turn-the-pages.org click the gift link and download your FREE copy of the College preparation guidelines. This will keep your students/children on task from Freshman to Senior year. #happy #college #search #authorjrivers #monday #nights #talk #show #host #chitown #chicagoauthor #producer #writer #teacher #studio #natural #building #community #career #success #leader #future #goals #free #download
I've been battling a cold for a minute but that won't stop me from working and being an active parent. I am a part of the Parent Committee, Marketing Committee, and the official Media Arts Liason. I'll be assisting in helping Jay's school to continue to raise money each year. It's great to be wanted and needed to do Awesome things that supports our future. Don't think for one second that I'm not studying! 😉 #graceful #movement #help #learn #grow #hustle #flow #authorjrivers #turnthepages #momlife #entrepreneurlife #producer #writer
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
When Sis needs your voluptuous figure for her silhouette video you better work it! My workouts have been paying off. #monday #authorjrivers #photographer #videographer #platforms #pink #shoes #no #falling #work #flow
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
I'm up working and loving it! I'm going to make it to exactly where I'm headed. Watch my feet! #authorjrivers #authorsofinstagram #writer #writerofinstagram #talkshowhost #chitown #chicagoauthor #chicago #author #creative

(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
