Chance The Rapper Hangs Out At A Chicago Public School For Career Day
Sometimes it’s about more than just giving money. Sometimes it’s about showing up.
Yesterday, Chance The Rapper, one of the world’s greatest leaders, made an unannounced visit to Courtenay Elementary, a public school in Chicago. There, he spent the morning and afternoon being involved with the school’s college and career fair.
According to students who attend the school. Chance talked to the entire school in the auditorium about his career so far. DNA Info Chicago spoke to some of those students, and all confirmed that Chance was spreading a pro-school, positive message.
“He spoke to all of us about his career and told us to stay in school,” said Joanne Tablas, a 13-year-old student. Another student, a nine-year-old named Gorgeous Peoples, said: “I think it was really cool. When I first saw him I was like, ‘oh my god.’ I just wanted to jump up … my whole class was excited.”
Chance was clearly excited, as well. He posted a video on his IG sitting in on “Ms. Jackson’s class:”
All this comes weeks after the rapper decided to donate over a $1 million dollars to public schools in Chicago.
