Sup Travellers?! Belissa Escobedo, Rhiannon McGavin, and Zariya Allen are three fearless girls on a mission to teach teens literacy through poetry but their poetry is a lot more than just about syllables and phonetics.

The three girls are a part of the non-profit organization Get Lit and they delve into deep issues about the education system in their home nation of America among other things. 

Queen Latifah goes on to interview these fearless girls and they give her some really amazing answers and insights into their strong beliefs.

When asked what is so important about poetry, Rhiannon says, "I think poetry is the best way to express emotions. I believe that if you write your feelings down, memorize the words and perform them aloud – that you won’t be bothered by that problem. It’s an amazing way to help people – especially teens."

Their performance was incredibly strong and moving and I think everyone needs to see it whether you're from the United States Of America or from Kenya. The issues are real.

Anyway, my name is Trinikid and you've just been informed.
