Why do I love Andrea Gibson? She’s relatable, she shows you that it’s okay to feel and cry. She makes you feel comforted with her words. Andrea Gibson is incredibly talented. I saw her perform live in 2011 and it was one of the most moving experiences of my life. I’ve heard all of her poems multiple times and they still put tears in my eyes and I love it. Listen to her, allow yourself to moved and changed by her words, allow yourself to cry and feel because you will be inspired.
