Sacramento (CBS13) – Poets and poets have fascinated the country.
Amanda Gorman’s inspiring performance at the inauguration on Wednesday is praised for meeting at that moment. Her grandmother, who lives in Sacramento, is not surprised at her success.
“She’s been building this all the time,” her grandma said.
She said Amanda has always been a wise woman and is known for calling on people to take action.
“They were real activists and she was always,” Gorman said of her family.
Amanda drew national attention with her poem “The Hill We Climb” at the inauguration of President Joe Biden. Her grandmother says Amanda wrote it in less than a month.
“It really was something the country and the community needed to hear,” Gorman said. “That’s what she does.”
Amanda Gorman was the youngest known inaugural poet and the first ever national youth poet laureate nominated by the Library of Congress in 2017.
“I love poetry, I love poetry, and I live on it,” Amanda told CBS.

To her, spoken language seems easy – although she once fought a language disorder.
“People always say you did all this, despite your speech disorder,” she said. “I say I did all this for those experiences.”
Her impressive performance sets the stage for the future as she wants to bid for her president someday. Her poem directly calls for that dream.
“We are the successors of the country, and we can dream of becoming president when a slender black girl descends from slavery and is raised by a single mother,” she said Wednesday.
These dreams are what her grandmother can lag behind.
“What I want is to be the best she can do,” Gorman said. “She is such a model for young black women, young black girls, and girls-duration.”
Her grandma’s words about this young glowing star prove her strong support in Sacramento.
