About Oprah

As a child Oprah was abused. Not only by her family, but by her peers. When Oprah was bullied, it put her down. It put her down mentally and physically. Her mind now believed that she was dumb, ugly, and fat. Oprah eventually learned to block out the voices in her head and her peers.
Oprah wanted to perform. Her goal was to achieve anything she wanted. Anything that made her have pride in herself. She found the courage to produce the Broadway musical based on "The Color Purple".
Oprah has weight problems. It brung her down a lot. She went to many programs for help. Most programs were a success. She does maintain a healthy diet. To you she may look "overwight" , but really she isn't. You don't have to be a stick to be healthy.
When Oprah created the Oprah Winfrey Network, it opened a new beginning for Oprah. At first the show wasn't very popular, but Oprah caught on very quickly. She found different ideas for other shows. She created games, free prizes, special guests, and more! The show soon became world wide and a big hit everywhere.
Ever since she created the show, she now she is known as the richest African American woman in the world. Oprah still makes a ton of money.
