2014 Massachusetts Conference For Women

From a Yale student to an Oscar Award winner, Lupita Nyong’o. She has had a great year.

The beauty posted a heart-felt message to her fans describing her year as it comes to a close.

Her poem says,

“This year was one of a kind, And a kind one to me. There was lots to be done, And a whole lot to see. I had family and friends, And colleagues galore, Now I have fans, Plus a million and four! You tweet and you post, And you Instagram too. You chat, comment, draw, You just do what you do.” “And though I don’t answer ‘Cause time is a-tickin’, Know that you matter By the posts that I’m pickin’. I keep posting ‘Cause I know that you care, And I care to post When I know that you’re there.” So this season, Though I know your name not, I’m happy I got you, And that I gave what you got. I wish for you peace, Love, joy, laughter beams, And in the new year, May you live out your dreams! (And as Dr. Seuss says:) ‘If things start happening, don’t worry, don’t stew, just go right along and you’ll start happening too.’ Love, Lupita N.”

She is known as much for her smarts as for her talent. She has since come to see that “our challenges in life have the equal chance of building us up or breaking us down, depending on how we absorb and interpret them,” she says. Yes, what doesn’t kill us makes us stronger. But “I think the power of that statement lies in how much you are willing to believe it,”

Well said Lupita. Well said. And how was your day?
