Oprah Winfrey

Oprah Winfrey is the person I looked at as a visionary and a dreamer. One of the most inspirational act that I think Oprah Winfrey has done are the schools she has built in South Africa for 152 South African girls. One quote that Oprah tells people is why she built the school it was because she wanted to give to girls who were like her. Girls who were poor, who had come from disadvantaged circumstances, but girls who had a light so bright that not even poverty, disease, and life circumstances could dim that light. What I learned from that quote was that you can help people that are just like you, you don't need to be rich but you can find a person that you know has that light and help them get there. Its kind of falls back to helping better your community even if its in a small way, you are the one making the change. Another quote that helps sum up what Oprah does with this school is by saying, "when you help save a life, you save a generation." That's is what makes her a visionary and a dreamer in my mind.
