Former National Youth Poet Laureate Amanda Gorman is in high demand these days after the country watched her perform a deeply inspirational poem at the inauguration of President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris.
Gorman has now signed a deal with IMG Models that will see the company help expand the poet's portfolio and manage the avalanche of opportunities she is now receiving, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The news outlet explained that IMG Models will organize any potential "editorial" opportunities and help her deal with endorsement offers.
Gorman will also get a new team of representatives from Writers House, WME and the law firm Gang, Tyre, Ramer, Brown and Passman to help her with other business deals.
The 22-year-old was rocketed into stardom last week when she performed, "The Hill We Climb" on Inauguration Day, capturing the attention of the entire country with her spellbinding poem about what it was like being a Black woman in her position.
As The Hollywood Reporter notes, Gorman went from just about 7,000 followers on Twitter and Instagram to millions on both platforms.
Other news outlets are already calling her a "style icon," and there is sure to be more coming from the standout poet in the future.
