Who is Oprah?
The presenter of Oprah: Where Are They Now? is a lot more than a typical TV star. When she was a little girl she used to deal with terrible life conditions. She lived in a financially troubled district of Kosciusko, Mississippi in the family of a coal miner and former maid. Oprah was an extremely imaginative girl. She could certainly be called a prodigy child. At the age of three, she could recite the lines from the Bible by heart. When she entered school, she had always been considered to be older than her real age because of her abilities to read and write.
Her relationships with mom were quite strained because her mom didn’t pay much attention to her. One of the most tragic moments of Oprah’s life was when she was raped by one of her cousins at the age of nine (and he was 19). Moreover, it wasn’t for a single time. At 14, she gave birth to a sick child that didn’t survive. Then she finally started a new life with her strict father who cares a lot about her education. She was perfect as a school student and as one of the members of their school’s drama classes. At one of the public speaking contest she managed to get the scholarship and started studying at Tennessee State University. At that period of time she also got a job on CBS and from that point she started her career on TV. She’s a true inspiration for all those who still face hardships in life.
