  2. -Maya Angelou This poem changed my life, way back in the days of AP English, when I felt like the dumb blonde who didn't belong in the class...this poem spoke to me, & was the first that I could truly understand & dissect the way we were supposed to with every piece we read...it inspired me to step up to the plate & show confidence, even if I didn't feel that way inside...this was a turning point in that class for me, & I ended up passing that dreaded AP test at the end of the year when many other "smarties" in the class didn't...thank you, Maya Angelou-may you rest in paradise. ❤️ #ripmayaangelou #inspiration #phenomenalwoman
