We have your weekly dose of inspiration. This act of courage and refreshing display of self-confidence will put a smile on your face.

Need your weekly dose of inspiration? Well here it is!

When we saw this poem read by founder Sarah McKinney, knew we had to share. In the video McKinney, recites a poem where she answers the question “Why not me?” and addresses letting go of all of her inhibitions. Perhaps the most refreshing thing is hearing her say it with so much conviction.  Described as an entrepreneur, writer, poet and songwriter McKinney is the founder of a soon-to-launch startup called AMP, “which organizes the best information and resources for sustainability students, professionals and social entrepreneurs.”
