From a Yale student to an Oscar Award winner, Lupita Nyong’o does have a lot to be grateful for as she indicates in her Instagram poem.

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."

The actress doesn’t only have beauty and class, but a special place for her fans round the world.
