Little People Big Dreams: Amanda Gorman

From an early age, Little Amanda read everything she could get her hands on, from books to cereal boxes. She had an auditory processing disorder and a speech impediment, and this meant she had to work hard, but she took great strength from her experiences. After hearing her teacher read aloud to the class, she knew that she wanted to become a poet, and nothing would stand in her way. At the age of 19, she became America's first-ever National Youth Poet Laureate.
