At this year’s TED, Sarah Kay received standing ovations for her talk “If I should have a daughter”. The talk is an extraordinary powerful example of storytelling and her way of telling her poetry (telling – because this is way beyond “reading”) really draws you in, almost makes you hold your breath.
She talks about her passion, spoken word poetry, as a way to understand the world and self.
“Everyone can communicate in some way, and everyone of us has stories, that the rest of us can learn from.”
It’s a beautiful talk – turn it on and let her words visualize and flow and listen to her stories.
