Oprah Winfrey

The Famous queen of talk - Oprah Winfrey, had her own ‘from hard luck to triumph’ story. And her hard luck began as soon as she came to this earth. She was born to unmarried parents who separated soon after she was born. For 6 years she lived with her grandmother, who whipped her even for the innocent childish things she did. Later, she was tossed on between her parents’ respective homes, where she was sexually and mentally abused. The series of torture went on with rape at a tender age of 9 and being pregnant by 14 which turned out to be a miscarriage later. Oprah Winfrey knew that she has a way with words and she wanted to be paid for it. These incidents in her life did scar her from within but she turned them into inspiration. She rose above all these hardships and made her mark. Today this inspiring lady has a net worth of about 2.9 billion USD!
