I LOVE her when she interviews anyone. Especially when she shows us her walk in wardrobe.

She was born into a poor family in a country that treated black people as second class citizens. From such a start, she worked, worked and worked to become the global success that she is now. She is an inspiration to me because she epitomises what one can achieve with diligence, tenacity, prescience, aplomb and a fair amount of good luck. She is one of my Sheros.

I was pleasantly surprised at ther school in Sout Africa project..| remarked on it to dd1 and she said well she can afford it

but I don't think that is the point most people don't do these things

I love Oprah. I think she is a celeb who DOES put her money and her position to good use.

Some of the things she says is a bit new agey, but I do really respect how far she has come given her background. I think she inspires people in a way that I think is rare these days.

i thought it was fab when she invited a number of friends/celebs to help her open the school and they were provided with great accom etc on the proviso that they donated books to the library.

I thought the school sounded fab and it is good to see celebs who put their money into bettering the community/world around them.

Yep, she's a great role model.

I wonder if there has been any hoo-haa in the states about the fact that she didn't do the school in the US or is everybody just happy that she's actually just done something constructive with her cash?
