One of the things I love is to listen to TED talks – some of the most inspirational people share their stories and one of these is Sarah Kay, queen of the Spoken Word. She is from New York and discovered a love for poetry and performance at the tender age of fourteen. The Bowery Poetry Club in the East Village was her classroom. She founded Project Voice where she inspires young people to express themselves through poetry. Her poems are open, honest and simply beautiful. Women like Sarah are excellent role models.
