30 Day Blog Challenge - Day 27

Today's Topic:
"Interesting Person"

Dr. Maya Angelou
This women is honestly such an inspiration to me. To give you a little background ...
"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 celebrated poet, memoirist, novelist, educator, dramatist, producer, actress, historian, filmmaker, and civil rights activist."

She has done so much in regards to African american culture, as well as women in general.
I first came to learn about Dr.Maya at a young age through her memoir and since then I've been gaining knowledge of her through her poetry, books and films. She has met the likes of Malcolm X as well as Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Her book "I know why the caged bird sings" is amazing and I would recommend it to anyone. 

In short, she is an amazing women and most definitely a person of interest for me.
That's all for now folks.
