Slams

So I was watching some YouTube videos and I came across a number of slams that inspired me so much to the point that I was in tears watching these videos.

I know that it's a bit cumbersome to watch all these videos, but please please please do. It's going to be worth it.

Kavindu "Kavi" Ade performing IT
           "And they know again. Know that you're not a him or a her but something in between, not human to them."
 
 
Katie Makkai performing Pretty
            "You will be pretty intelligent, pretty creative, pretty amazing, but you will never be merely pretty."

 
Taylor Mali performing What Teachers Make
            "Do you know what i make? I make kids work harder than they ever thought they could."
