We regret to inform you that the renown Maya Angelou has passed away at the age of 86. Her impact on the world was great and will always be remembered.

Inspirational Quotes by Ms Angelou:

“If you don’t like something, change it. If you can’t change it, change your attitude.”
 
“Try to be a rainbow in someone’s cloud.”
 

 

“Angelou, one of the most renowned and influential voices of our time, is a celebrated poet, novelist, educator, producer, actress, filmmaker and civil rights activist.

A professor, singer and dancer, among other things, Angelou’s work spans several different professions. She spent her early years studying dance and drama in California.

After dropping out at age 14, she became the San Francisco’s first African-American female cable car conductor.

Angelou later returned to high school to finish her diploma and gave birth to her son a few weeks after graduation. While the 17-year-old single mother waited tables to support her son, she acquired a passion for music and dance.

Affectionately referred to as Dr. Angelou, the professor never went to college. She has received over 50 honorary degrees and was Reynolds Professor of American Studies at Wake Forest University.

Angelou is famous for saying, “I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”

Maya Angelou’s birth name was Marguerite Annie Johnson, and she was fluent in 6 languages.” READ MORE
