Poet Amanda Gorman was a ray of light at the Inauguration.

Her unforgettable poem, “The Hill We Climb” captivated millions of hearts across the globe.

Her simple words reminded everyone that no matter how hard things might be, there is always the light at the end of the tunnel.

The gorgeous poet was born in Los Angeles. She was a Youth Poet Laureate in 2014 and a National Youth Poet Laureate three years later.

Her brilliant work focuses on issues like oppression, feminism, race and the African diaspora. Themes often tackled in stories from the legendary Maya Angelou.

Gorman paid tribute to the inspiring author by wearing a caged bird ring. …

MaaSci by Jacque Njeri from Instagram / of_njeri

Jacque Njeri wanted to pay tribute to the Maasai, so she created a sensational art project called “MaaSci”.

The brilliant artist presented a vibrant collection of digital collages that imagines the Maasai in outer space.

The semi-nomadic tribe is the perfect candidate for space exploration because of their constant desire to move. Furthermore, their fascinating spiritual beliefs are also a source of inspiration.

The Maasai are monotheist and believe in Enkai, a wise God who has two sides.

No matter how hard I tried, things were still the same, especially in the morning.
