The 14-year-old has gone viral for time-lapse videos of Vice President Kamala Harris and President Joe Biden when they took office, even getting a phone call afterwards from the Oakland VP.
Gordon posted a new tweet Monday, sharing his new painting of Amanda Gorman, the brilliant 22-year-old youth poet laureate who blew the country away with her poem at President Biden's Inauguration, entitled, "The Hill We Climb".
The painter wrote to the poet in part, "Your words inspired me so much last week and not only because of what you said but because of the obstacles I know you had to overcome to get there!"
Dear @TheAmandaGorman , WOW! Your words inspired me so much last week and not only because of what you said but because of the obstacles I know you had to overcome to get there! Thank you so much for inspiring me and every other person in the world with a speech impediment! pic.twitter.com/ImA0O1EZp7— Tyler Gordon (@tygordonsworld) January 25, 2021
Surely, this is not the last we will be hearing from these two young talents.
