Amanda Gorman's resume is quickly growing. It was just announced that the 22-year-old has signed with IMG Models, less than a week after going viral for her reading at President Biden's inauguration.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Amanda's partnership with IMG will "focus on building her profile through brand endorsements and editorial opportunities."

Despite Amanda's many accolades (she was the first ever National Youth Poet Laurette), it was her reading of her original poem, "The Hill We Climb" last Wednesday that gained the public's attention. Many praised her for the brilliant poem, as well as her Inauguration Day look, which managed to stand out among the other great coats of the day.

And if you still haven't gotten enough of Amanda (I know I haven't), you're in luck. Her book of poetry, The Hill We Climb, will be released in September, along with her picture book, Change Sings. I think it's safe to say, though, that we will be seeing a lot more of Amanda before then.
