Early Life & Background of Oprah Winfrey:
Oprah Winfrey happens to be a big name in the 21st Century. I am sure each one of you blindly agrees to the above statement. However, let us first begin with her early childhood days. For all you people who are unaware, let me tell you that Oprah is known to be born on January 29th, 1954 to an unmarried mother in Kosciusko, Mississippi. Though, Oprah happens to be recognized as one of the richest women of today’s times, she is known to have had a troubled childhood all because of her weak financial condition. Apart from this, we can often recollect numerous occasions on which Oprah is seen remembering her grandmother Hatti Mae Lee, the only lady to whom she contributes her success and fame mainly because of the efforts that this lady had put in, in order to assist Winfrey in developing herself to face the then cruel world.
Furthermore, during her childhood days, Oprah was also known to be nicknamed “The Little Speaker”, all thanks to her ability of being able to quickly and rightly recite most of the rhymes based in the Bible. Ever since her high school days, Oprah is known to be largely actively in speech based activities such as drama. Moreover, while studying in college, Winfrey was known to be offered the position of a co-anchor on the CBS television station. However, after enough coaxing by her speech professor, she decided to take up the same and eventually that became the point of time, which kickstarted or rather was a beginning to a glorious and shimmering career.
The Turning Point in Oprah Winfrey’s life:
While pursuing her graduation, Oprah got lucky to secure a job at Maryland, but the glitch here was that she had to either opt for her education or leave her studies altogether and go ahead and take up this job. This is exactly where she was put in a tough situation, but she decided to leave back her education and go ahead with the journalist job as the opportunity looked highly lucrative. However, soon after taking up this job she was fired from the same, mainly because of her inability to cope up with this particular position.
This is exactly where came in the turning point. Oprah was offered this morning talk show by the name “People are Talking”. This show went on successfully for seven long years. However, after working on this show for seven years, Oprah decided that it was time to switch on to something else. However, the best part about this stint of hers, was that she realized what her actual calling was and what is that she would like to do for a whole lifetime.
Once this was done, came the biggest achievement in the life of Oprah. This big achievement was nothing, but a job with A.M Chicago. As soon as she was offered this job, she changed the name of this show and eventually initiated “The Oprah Winfrey Show” in the year 1986. Though this show was introduced keeping in view women as the ultimate target audience, with time the show came to be directed to people belonging to all possible ages, ethnics as well as genders. In this particular show of hers, Oprah happened to promote a large array of items including books, movies as well as different personalities at large. This show became a huge hit and became eligible for a number of prestigious awards including the Day Time Emmy Awards. On an overall level, the reason behind the success of this show was contributed to the people skills held by Oprah coupled with her ability to connect with her audiences and keep them hooked.
All in all, Oprah Winfrey has been recognized not only as a spot on philanthropist, but at the same time tends to enjoy a huge fan base. So what are you waiting for? Want to get a quick glance into Oprah’s life? Make it a point to read through this particular write up now.
