(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
I'm in the process of reorganizing my shelf. All day project and this is only one shelf. So many books and I'm not sure where to start. So now books are everywhere. I'm stressed! 😔 May God continue to bless librarians! #authorjrivers #authorsofinstagram #talkshowhost #writer #writersofinstagram #books #bookshelf #giveaway #or #keep #my #personal #library #librarians

@Regrann from @author_jrivers - Guess who is a part of the biggest reading program going on in Chicago this summer? You guessed right. Author Jordan Rivers is part of Rahm's Readers. I was told my character "The Professor" is a Superhero and I have a lot in store for every child that comes out. A huge Thank you to Mayor Rahm Emanuel and the Chicago Public Library's Blackstone Branch! I hope to see you and your family there. #authorjrivers #cpl #chicago #chicagopubliclibrary #chicagoauthor #authorsofinstagram #writers #writersofinstagram #library #mayorrahmemanuel #speaker #wensday #august #16 #six #thirty #naturalhair #glasses #blackgirlsrock #making #moves - #regrann

#tbt❤️ Thinking bout the years I was raised... Back in the day when I was young I'm not a kid anymore but some days I sit and wish I was a kid again. One of my favorite pictures of me. #authorjrivers #authorsofinstagram #writer #writersofinstagram #kid #tbt #ahmad #chitown #chicagoauthor #chicago #naturalhair #big #hair #dont #care #young #writer
I had to sit back in silence to see how certain people would react to my silence. It's sad that I was right... patience! #authorjrivers #authorsofinstagram #writer #writersofinstagram #people #cut #off #still #smiling
