Amanda Gorman, an American poet and activist, thanked Meghan Markle for asking her to be on the “Archetypes” podcast.
On Instagram, the young woman, who is 28 years old, posted a picture of herself with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle along with the caption, “I am beyond thrilled to have had the honour of speaking with The Duchess on her podcast, Archetypes, where the topic of our conversation was the power that women possess as changemakers.”
“I am extremely grateful to you for inviting me.”
The topics of oppression, feminism, race, and marginalisation, as well as the African diaspora, are central to the body of work produced by Amanda.
She was the first person to hold the position of National Youth Poet Laureate. 2015 saw the release of her collection of poems titled “The One for Whom Food Is Not Enough.” She recited her poem “The Hill We Climb” at the inauguration of Joe Biden as President of the United States of America in 2021.
