‘If I should have a daughter, instead of Mom, she’s gonna call me Point B…’ began spoken word poet Sarah Kay in a talk that inspired two standing ovations at TED2011 . She tells the story of her metamorphosis from a wide-eyed teenager soaking in verse at New York’s Bowery Poetry Club to a teacher connecting kids with the power of self-expression through Project V.O.I.C.E. and gives two breathtaking performances of “B” and “Hiroshima.”

A performing poet since she was 14 years old, Sarah Kay is the founder of Project V.O.I.C.E., teaching poetry and self-expression at schools across the United States
