Inspiration #4: Oprah Winfrey

My inspiration for this week is Oprah Winfrey. She inspires me daily because she is the true definition of a rose that grew from the concrete. She was born into a poverty stricken home with a teenage single mother and ever since her birth things only got harder. As she grew older Oprah faced many cases of molestation in her life even one that resulted in the birth of her son that died as an infant. Despite the many hardships she faced she always found ways to give back to many communities, most specifically the African American community. She built a school in South Africa called “Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls” and donates to many charities.
