Tenderness, generosity, and inspiration are just a few words that come to my mind when I think of Oprah Winfrey. She is a strong American woman who has overcome many obstacles that have fallen in her way: She grew up in a poor neighborhood, sexually abused at the age of 9 and was pregnant at the age of 14.
In spite all of this, Oprah has become one of the most successful women in the world. She is a famous media proprietor, journalist, talk show host, writer, actress and more. She named also the first African-American anchorwoman.
Oprah wants always to prove that education and hard work are the only ways to improve ourselves and to make a change in the world. Because of this, she created the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls so as to produce future women leaders of South Africa.
These are just few reasons that make me respect and admire her determination, her strength, and her intelligence.
