â€œI’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feelâ€ – Maya Angelou
And Maya Angelou made me feel some kind of way. From the moment I found I Know Why the Caged Bird SingsÂ on a library bookshelf at age 12 to when I learnt of her many occupations throughout her life in her series of autobiographies – a young working mother, a waitress, a streetcar conductor in San Francisco, a magazine editor in Cairo, an administrative assistant at the University of Ghana, a dancer, a calypso singer, a screenwriter, an actress, a civil rights activist. What a phenomenal woman.Â
