  10. An amazing poet whose tender age makes her achievements even more impressive. She was named Youth Poet Laureate at the age of 19 (4 years ago)! She combines the power of her words with a powerful sense of social justice - quite a feat, indeed. Here's the poem she read at Biden's inauguration: THE HILL WE CLIMB When day comes we ask ourselves, where can we find light in this never-ending shade?
