We all look up to personalities around us, who may or may not be celebrities. Do you have a role model and can't wait to get your hands on their auto/biography? Who is that person and why is she/he your role model?
I just bought a copy of Singin' and Swingin' and Gettin' Merry Like Christmas, the third volume of Maya Angelou's autobiography. I've been meaning to get the next part for a while and was reminded when I heard of her death this week. She had an amazing life and the first two volumes of her story were really fascinating so I'm looking forward to this one. I wouldn't say she was my role model, but she was a wonderful poet and I found it kind of comforting and inspiring that she did so many different things while figuring out what she wanted to do with her life and overcame so many hardships.
