Zippy's Video of the Week: Amanda Gorman Roars at the Moth Grand Slam

Before Poet Amanda Gorman was named a National Youth Poet Laureate, and before her recent performances at the 2021 Presidential Inauguration and Super Bowl LV, she was a young child auditioning for a Broadway play.

Gorman recounts this experience — and how she worked to overcome a speech impediment — at a Moth GrandSLAM storytelling event from 2017 (when she was 17). She took home first place for her performance.
