Less than a week after enrapturing audiences at President Joe Biden's inauguration ceremony, America's youth poet laureate Amanda Gorman has signed with one of the world's biggest modeling agencies.

The Los Angeles Times reported that the 22-year-old has signed a deal with the talent discovery and model management agency to expand her personal brand through endorsements and editorial opportunities.

The daytime TV host told Gorman - who became an instant sensation after reading her poem "The Hill We Climb" at President Biden's inauguration last week - that she would get behind her presidential campaign in 2036.

In a yellow double-breasted coat by Italian designer Miuccia Prada and a red satin Prada headband, the poet and activist stood out against the more muted crowd behind her.

The Harvard grad has also been enjoying her foray into fame with an obligatory appearance on Ellen.

She told "GMA" the day after the inauguration that she was "honestly shocked" at the invitation.

"This was a dream that I think came into existence around 6th grade", she said, adding that the idea was born after her maths teacher jokingly said that she could run for president as she was a very passionate and feisty girl.

One of the captains, Los Angeles' Trimaine Davis, will be recognized for his dedication to his students amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

Earlier this month, Gorman - who has also announced plans to run for president as soon as she's eligible in 2036 - spoke with the The Times about her experience perfecting her spoken-word craft while growing up with a speech impediment.
