Amanda Gorman's Biography

Cypriana J. Dumm

Overview

Gorman's poem, The Hill We Climb, was written after the 2020 US election and revised in response to the Jan 6th attack on the Capitol, marking a moment of real change. The more we discover about the path that brought Gorman to the same Capitol steps just a fortnight later, the more likely it seems that these are only the foothills of her personal hills.

The 22-year-old Amanda Gorman was a breakout 'star' of the 2021 Presidential inauguration. Sharing the occasion with the first ever woman of color to be sworn in as Vice President, Gorman's appearance was history in the making. She became the youngest poet ever to recite at a presidential inauguration. While the Harvard graduate's striking fashion choices and effortless poise caught the world's attention, it was her poetry that enthralled the public.

Cypriana J. Dumm has written the biographies of such luminaries as Tom Brady and Cicely Tyson, as well as Cryptocurrency for Dummies. There's not exactly a library of information about Gorman's life to date, but Dumm calls on a variety of sources to create a clear picture of the person behind the poems.
