Sarah Kay TED Talk Moves and Inspires

Sarah Kay is a wonderful spoken word poet. In this TED talk, she recites two of her poems and talks about her journey to get where she's at now. Beautiful speech by a lovely spirit. I wish I could give a better summary of this video, but the video description on TED explains it best:
"If I should have a daughter, instead of Mom, she's gonna call me Point B ... " began spoken word poet Sarah Kay, in a talk that inspired two standing ovations at TED2011. She tells the story of her metamorphosis -- from a wide-eyed teenager soaking in verse at New York's Bowery Poetry Club to a teacher connecting kids with the power of self-expression through Project V.O.I.C.E. -- and gives two breathtaking performances of "B" and "Hiroshima."
Do yourself a favor and watch this.
