Meeting link https://go.umd.edu/UCML3Wednesdays

Hello all, 

Hope your first week was manageable and that you’re starting off this week well! It was great seeing those of you who came to our check-in chat last week.

This week we will be having our first regular L3 dialogue session. On Wednesday at 12 p.m. we will be looking at inaugural poet Amanda Gorman’s “The Hill We Climb” and the ways we are all affected by her words and the subject matter of her poem. We shall also explore how her historic role as the youngest inaugural poet, her representation of youth, especially young black women, inspires us to live our callings and dreams!

If you want to watch her speech prior to meeting here is a link https://www.ted.com/talks/amanda_gorman_the_hill_we_climb.We’ll also watch it together. 
Join us to share your own thoughts about the poem, take a deep dive into Amanda’s words, or just listen to other’s thoughts. All are welcome. 
Hope to see you there!
Best, Samantha, L3 intern
