Oprah, a woman that needs no last name AND can grace the cover of her own magazine every month and still sell oodles of copies, is a mega media giant. Reaching billionaire status and topping the charts everywhere, she is an Emmy-awarded journalist, Oscar-nominated actress, philanthropist, publisher, writer, producer and so powerful she makes anyone she endorses instantly rise to superstardom. Her accomplishments and philanthropic work are so abundant, we could fill books just listing them out.
Ms. O first made her mark with The Oprah Winfrey Show, which ran for 25 years, reached 44 million US viewers a week and was broadcast in 140 countries, but since stepping away, her popularity hasn’t wavered. She has continued to tell stories through her various magazines, philanthropy work and production company - not to mention the Leadership Academy for Girls that she opened and continues to support in South Africa.
Additionally, in the early 90’s, Oprah made her way to DC to testify for the Oprah Bill. Signed in by then president Bill Clinton, the bill became the National Child Protection Act of 1993 and established a national database of convicted child abusers. And again in 2008, she urged her TV viewers to contact their senators to pass the PROTECT Our Children Act, a bill to increase resources, investigate and prosecute child predators and make improvements on internet crimes against children.
No doubt, there are few people that can accomplish what Oprah has been able to do. She is and will remain a woman to admire.
