Chance the Rapper has been the voice of positivity we’ve needed in these dark times. When he’s not making a new video with Jamila Woods, sharing tidbits about his insanely-adorable daughter, saving Chicago schools (while dressed like Steve Jobs), or creating an awards show to celebrate educators, he’s tweeting positive aphorisms for your everyday life like an earnest Lori Beth Denberg.

Well, a 17-year-old high school senior named Danny Diaz wanted to get in on the game, so he created a parody Chance the Rapper Twitter account and started putting Chance-style positivity out into the world.
