Maya Angelou Ann Johnnson
April 4, 1998- May 28, 2014
She had a lot of jobs like an actress,screenwriter,and a poet and those are not all that she had.
One of the quotes she said was I know why the caged bird sings. that was one of her famous quotes.
When she was young her mom and dad split up so her and her brother had to go live with there grandmother.
I learned about all the jobs she had and her child hood that it was harsh.
On of her character traits are honest. I think she was honest like in her quote like it just sounds honest. The other one was encouraging when she was a child she went through it and it is encouraging for other kids not to give up and she had a lot of careers and encouraged people.
