This iReport is part of an assignment:
The Day I Fell In Love With Maya Angelou
- zdan, CNN iReport producer
I had the opportunity to talk to Richard Sher a few months ago and I told him how I was introduced to her on his and Oprah's morning show years ago. I shared with him that I used to fantasize that if Oprah ever granted a wish for me, it would be to meet Maya Angelou. Mr. Sher passed this on to Oprah and she sent a message to me via email through him.
I am so grateful to him for sharing my admiration of Maya Angelou with Oprah.
I feel like I am one of Maya Angelou's daughters.
One of my favorite quotes is
"People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel."
I will never forget how Maya Angelou made me feel.
