Here’s 5 fast facts about River!
He’s got a great red carpet moment.
The most memorable showbiz moment was escorting EGOT* winner Rita Moreno down the red carpet at the Bronx Children’s Museum Gala. Mrs. Moreno is amazing . It was an honor to be able to walk alongside her legend. It will truly be a memory I share for the rest of my life.

Want to write your own book? He offers some advice.
The best advice I can give for children who want to publish a book is to map out your goals. I find it easier to write my goals down. This way once I accomplish my goals I know what expectation to have next.
He’s got something to say about peer pressure.
I think peer pressure is not cool. I think it’s a form of bullying. I do not stand with that. I believe every teen should live by their own rules (& their parents’). No one should do something out of negative influence. I avoid peer pressure by being myself and remaining head strong. If I don’t want to do something I say “No” and remain unswayed.
He can do tricks with his ears.
One surprising fact about me is that I can move my ears without touching them. It’s really cool & creepy at the same time.
He gets to eat this special meal often:
One amazing food I love to eat at least once a week is hands down my Nana’s Jollof rice. To be specific Nigerian Jollof rice is the best.
