Essay: What Maya Angelou Means To Me

Since I am only nine years old, I don't have lots of information about Maya Angelou's poems, books, or fame. So, I just decided to talk about what Dr. Maya Angelou did for me. My Mom had me read the poem "Phenomenal Woman" for a possible school project one day. After that, whenever I am feeling a little sad for being different, I just remember how happy and important reading that poem makes me feel.

Essay: A True Inspiration To All

Dr. Maya Angelou is one of the most renowned and influential voices of our time. Hailed as a global renaissance woman, Dr. Angelou is a memoirist, novelist, educator, dramatist, producer, actress, historian, filmmaker, and civil rights activist. However, she is most remembered as a beautiful poet. Throughout this essay, I will send you back in time to see the life of the magnificent Dr. Maya Angelou. It is hard to find words that describe her, so I will leave that up to you. But, I will say her poetry will slide through the brain and straight to your heart.
