The Queen of Media: Oprah Winfrey
“Think like a queen. A queen is not afraid to fail. Failure is another stepping stone to greatness.”
What hasn’t Oprah Winfrey mastered–daytime TV, magazines, film, network television? Winfrey is the second African-American woman to launch her own network (after Cathy Hughes), OWN. Winfrey, who founded Harpo Productions in the late ’80s, became America’s first black woman billionaire. According to Forbes, her worth is now about $2.7 billion. Hers is an oft-told true rags-to-riches story. And now she’s giving back with her school in South Africa, the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls.
