My Opinion

I think that Nikki Giovanni is a great poet to be a woman. Her poetry is cute and it always make sense. Not only is she a poet but she also writes books as a side career. I really like the fact that even though she is kind of famous she still works at a public college in Virginia. She has respect for others and not just herself.
