Inaugural Poet Amanda Gorman makes history as the youngest known inaugural poet at age 22. She follows the lead of other inaugural poets and historical speakers such as: Maya Angelou and Robert Frost. Gorman's poem, "The Hills We Climb," brought her to national attention after her performance at the Inauguration of President Joe Biden. Like many others, I was moved with emotions as she performed. Gorman deserves to be celebrated for her contribution to the unity and progress of America through her literature and brilliance.
