Sarah Kay… A poet and more…

Standard

Salam dear friends,

The past Sunday was the International Women’s Day, and I thought of sharing with you some of the brilliant women that you need to know about πŸ™‚

One of these women is a young lady who inspires me in every possible way and I just love her.. I’m talking about the talented: Sarah Kay πŸ™‚

It’s been weeks since I last watched her videos.. My friend reminds me of her today, and I thought I need to share with you and you need to watch her and know her πŸ˜‰

I first found out about her 2 or 3 years ago, and looking intoΒ her bio, I have a lot of things in common with her.. I love that πŸ™‚

To give more information about her, I took this from her Facebook page, and it’s lovely:

Sarah Kay is a New Yorker. a poetry writer and reader. a spoken word poetry teacher. the founder and co-director of Project V.O.I.C.E. with Phil Kaye. a witty banter enthusiast. a postcard lover. a documentary filmmaker. a foodie. a playwright. a singer. a songwriter. a photographer. a best-selling author of the book B. an editor for Write Bloody Publishing. a Gemini. a mediocre driver at best. a musical theater geek. a smoothie expert. the daughter of a Taoist mother and a Brooklynese father. a hapa. less cool than her little brother. an alum of the United Nations International School. an alum of Brown University. an alum of Brown University Graduate School’s Masters Program in the Art of Teaching Secondary English. a recipient of an Honorary Doctorate of Humane Letters from Grinnell College.

Her talks and spoken words are just mind changing πŸ™‚

I want to share with you some of my favorite videos of her.. Enjoy and share ❀
