Oprah Winfrey: An Icon of Women
From a badly beaten and bruised past to being America's most influential woman of her time,Oprah Gail Winfrey,undoubtedly is one living proof that there is light at the end of a tunnel.Her rags to riches story truly inspired women from all across the globe.And I think this title befits a lady of her stature,An Icon of Women.Through her The Oprah Winfrey show,she has made a big difference in the lives of people and women in general,tackling on issues which aren't ratings-friendly but seeing the sincerity,dedication and sheer hard work she puts in each episode,the show soared to the top.Her life is well documented so I'll spare you from a Wikipedia type post and go directly as to how this inspiring woman has touched the life of a fellow Filipina,Charice Pempengco.Together with another great woman,Ellen Degeneres,they have turned this little girl's dream into reality.From being just a YouTube fixture,look at how big Charice is now.Credit goes out to the able guidance of her generous godmother,her angel.Carving a niche in the international music scene,can't help but feel very proud of what she has achieved for herself and for her family.She is one talented soul but without people like Oprah who literally opened the doors for her by giving her unequalled support and motivation,she might still be confined in this little corner of the world.
Whichever way you write it,Oprah...Harpo... spells success.
“The biggest adventure you can take is to live the life of your dreams.” ~Oprah Winfrey
