Hello Beauties! Every Tuesday I will be giving you facts about an inspiring woman! The series will be called #TerrificWomanTuesday, so tune in every Tuesday to get your weekly facts about an inspiring/powerful woman!
This Tuesday I’m giving you facts about the queen of all media!! This Beauty is Oprah Winfrey. I am sure you all know who she is, but did you know that in 1993 Bill Clinton honored Oprah by signing into the law that is now known as the “Oprah Bill.” This bill created a national database that allows people to search for child abusers. She also became the first African-American woman on Forbes magazine’s “World’s Richest People” list in 2003. Wow!! In 2007, the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls opened in South Africa. The school houses 152 girls from different backgrounds and provides them with an education. Oprah Winfrey every year raises the bar for woman, showing us that with hard work anything is possible. At the Golden Globes last Sunday, Oprah became the first black woman to win the Cecil B. DeMille Award. She also gave a speech at the Golden Globes, which was absolutely iconic. Here is one of my favorite quotes from her unforgettable speech! “What I know for sure is that speaking your truth is the most powerful tool we all have. And I’m especially proud, and inspired by all the women who have felt strong enough and empowered enough to speak up and share their personal stories.” Oprah Winfrey continues to inspire and give hope to women all over the world! Oprah Winfrey is a girl with beauty and brains.
