Jared Green, a 24-year old activist, leader, and nonprofit organization founder, can now add author to his list of motivating titles. On September 21, he released his children's book There is a Creature in my Belly. Through his nonprofit organization, Sunny with a Chance of Love, he plans to donate 1,000 of his books across the city of New Orleans to underprivileged children.
As a community-active New Orleans native from the Lower Ninth Ward, Green has always aimed to be an inspiration and promote growth and change.
“I am a dreamer. I envision a city that creates innovative social and economic change and is the pioneer of such things for cities all around the country,” explained Green. “I believe the future is bright, and my hope for the future of people all around the city is even brighter.”
