Happy Birthday Dr. Maya Angelou!

April 4, 1928 – May 28, 2014

Today we celebrate the legacy of Dr. Maya Angelou on what would be her 88th birthday. She is a personal heroine and inspiration that lifts my soul and nurtures my attitude on life.

Dr. Angelou is a remarkable Renaissance woman who is hailed as one of the great voices of contemporary literature. She published seven autobiographies, three books of essays, and several books of poetry and is credited with a list of plays, movies, and television shows spanning more than fifty years. Her first autobiography, I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings (1969), tells of her life up to the age of 17 and brought her international recognition and acclaim.

Her poem “And Still I Rise” is another one of my favorite pieces and always motivates me to rise above any obstacles and to live and grow.

Thank you for sharing your light!

Happy Birthday Dr. Maya Angelouย ๐Ÿ’–
