Dr. Maya Angelou
She worked hard to overcome so many things; racism, sexism, etc. Rather than letting her troubles get her down, she became strong.
Oprah Winfrey said of Dr. Angelou, "...The world knows her as a poet but at the heart of her, she was a teacher. 'When you learn, teach. When you get, give,' is one of my best lessons from her.
"But what stands out to me most about Maya Angelou is not what she has done or written or spoken, it's how she lived her life..."
Dr. Maya Angelou was a great human being. Even though I did not know her personally, I miss her.
And I hope I can be even a little bit like her.
