If you were captivated by Amanda Gorman, the youngest Inaugural Poet in U.S. history today, you're not alone. Together, we climb the hill toward a new day.

Watch Amanda, who became the United States of America’s first National Youth Poet Laureate in 2017, share her Moth story about trying to find her big break in auditioning for Broadway. She told her story at our GrandSLAM in Boston that same year, taking home first place.

The Moth is a nonprofit organization dedicated to honoring the commonality and diversity of human experience through the art and craft of true, personal storytelling.
