Maya Angelou also known as Marguerite Johnson’s, hard work has brought her to becoming famous on a talk show, leading her to being on other tv shows as well. Born on April 04, 1928 in St. Louis, Missouri, yet seen on tv once and became an actress herself. Winning several oscars and became a guest star on Oprah’s talk show on national tv.
Eventually, leading up to success on national tv became a well known thing for her in her late 50s. Maya Angelou was a phenomenal woman by her achievements and work in poetry.

             In addition to her career in tv, later was also an author, poet, historian, songwriter, director, playwright, dancer, stage and screen producer, performer, singer, and civil rights activist. However, evidence has shown that a picture has led to a website with Oprah and her, sitting on tv(“Amber pg 1”). Meeting Oprah was most likely an inspiration for her.  Making herself well known as an actress and widely read poet.

    Maya Angelou had a successful life, and achieved many goals. Although things came up, she still strived for success. Hardworking daily as a phenomenal woman and never gave up.For example, everything she did as a person she has to be an overachiever to accomplish all of those things. Although it might not seem like much, but anyone was a help back then. Now she is gone and will never be forgotten, always said “You may cut me with your eyes, kill me with hatefulness, but I still rise because I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings”she said. For example, she basically meant that no matter the hatefulness she will still succeed. Always remember it was not the number of poems that's got her famous but the quality of them.
