Well that didn't take long. Less than a week after she captivated the country, and maybe even the world, Poet Laureate Amanda Gorman has signed on with IMG Models. One of the largest modeling agencies in the world, IMG has on its roster many Hollywood starlets like Chrissy Teigen, Selena Gomez and more.
I'm very happy that Amanda is getting the recognition she deserves. Not only is she immensely talented, but her style definitely got our attention too. She obviously has a knack for fashion, as seen by her Prada ensemble at the inauguration, and her unique accessories.
The 22-year-old Harvard graduate is the perfect example of encouragement and motivation for youth of color (and some seasoned adults alike) to follow. I am so happy to see her platform get elevated even higher because that is the type of reassurance people in our communities need to constantly see.
Amanda will also be a part of some of the Super Bowl pre-game festivities next month.
