Oprah Winfrey- Day 3- 31daysofWomen

“I’ve come to believe that each of us has a personal calling that’s as unique as a fingerprint – and that the best way to succeed is to discover what you love and then find a way to offer it to others in the form of service, working hard, and also allowing the energy of the universe to lead you.” – Oprah Winfrey, American media proprietor, talk show host, actress, producer, and philanthropist.
My first encounter with Oprah was in the mid 80’s when I watched the movie “The Color Purple” and her interview with Michael Jackson on her TV talk show, ever since then I love all things Oprah.
When I moved back to New York in the 90’s I watched her show religiously every day and I dreamed of attending her talk show and been the recipient of one her magnificent giveaways : a washer, a car, hey! even a pen I will take graciously, it is an Oprah pen!!!!!
But all jokes aside, I truly admire this woman, her perseverance, resilience, determination and compassion. Oprah Winfrey shows all of these qualities in everything she does and her viewers feel a connection with her. She is not afraid to share her pain and be vulnerable on TV, she knows that all of us come from a place of suffering but she is determined to let us know and show us that those situations shouldn’t define who you are but instead teach you something and become the force that pushes you to follow your “calling” and become the best version of yourself.
She is a living success story, a woman born in rural poverty who has become one of the most influential and powerful woman in the world. She became a millionaire at the age of 32 and was able to negotiate ownership of her syndicated TV show. She also demonstrates her compassion and humanity through all her charity work around the globe, Oprah has ranked amongst 50 of the most generous Americans by giving more than $400 million to educational causes and through her Oprah’s Angel of Network she has supported charitable projects and provided grants to nonprofit organizations around the world.
As a woman and entrepreneur myself, Oprah Winfrey is an inspiration and someone I look up to. Oprah has a loyal following; she has credibility; she has talent; and she’s done it on her own!
