CW student Shahine Clarke has a very particular SHero in mind, Maya Angelou.

This incredible woman was an American poet, memoirist, and civil rights activist. She published seven autobiographies, three books of essays, several books of poetry, and is credited with a list of plays, movies, and television shows spanning over 50 years. For this and many other reasons, Maya Angelou is Shahine’s SHero.

“Whenever I read her books or her poems, I feel a sense of empowerment. She defines what a strong woman is like. She exemplifies what a phenomenal woman is like. I’m reminded that I should never give up, and I should always work hard for what I want. No matter the obstacles, I should always strive for the best.
