Om jeg skulle fått en datter, istedenfor mamma, skal hun kallle meg Punkt B ... begynte talte ord poet Sarah Kay, i en tale som inspirerte til to stående ovasjoner på TED2011. Hun forteller historien om hennes metamorfose — fra å være en tenåring med vidåpne øyne i aksjon på New Yorks Bowery Poetry Club til å bli en lærer som kobler barn med kraften av selvuttrykking gjennom Project V.O.I.C.E. — og gir to fantastiske opptredener av "B" og "Hiroshima."

A performing poet since she was 14 years old, Sarah Kay is the founder of Project VOICE, an organization that uses spoken word poetry as a literacy and empowerment tool. Full bio
