“The truth is you don’t have anything to give that you don’t have, so you have to keep your own self full. That’s your job.”

Oprah Gail Winfrey is an American talk show host, actress, producer and philanthropist.

The Oprah Winfrey show was the highest-rated television program of its kind. Dubbed the “Queen of All Media”, she has been ranked the richest African-American, the greatest black philanthropist in American history, and is currently North America’s first and only multi-billionaire black person.

Several assessments rank her as the most influential woman in the world.

In 2013, she was awarded the Presidential medal of freedom by President Barak Obama and honorary doctorate degrees from Duke and Harvard.

Winfrey was born into poverty in rural Missippissi to a teenage single mother and later raised in an inner-city Milwaukee neighborhood.

She has stated that she was molested during her childhood and early teens and became pregnant at 14; her son died in infancy.

Sent to live with the man she calls her father, Winfrey landed a job in radio while still in high school and began co-anchoring the local evening news at the age of 19.

Her emotional ad-lib delivery eventually got her transferred to the daytime talk show arena, and after boosting a third-rated local Chicago talk show to first place, she launched her own production company and became internationally syndicated.
