In January 2021, Amanda Gorman made history. At 22 years old, she became the youngest inaugural poet in the history of the United States and catapulted her career into the public eye, where she is sure to remain. Amidst one of the most pivotal moments in modern U.S. history, Gorman recited her original poem, “The Hill We Climb,” adeptly and succinctly vocalizing the division and frustration felt by the nation following the insurrection and uplifting her audience through her pervasive and forceful message of hope and unity. The response to her performance was universal and reverberating, causing Gorman (along with Bernie Sanders’ mittens) to go viral during the first week of Biden and Harris’ leadership. Since then, Gorman has recited her poetry at the Super Bowl LV, done several commissioned recitations for CBS This Morning and generally has been in very high demand as she gains recognition and traction for her work with the written and spoken word.
