The TV queen has certainly created a legacy in this world, and she is not done yet. In a behind-the-scenes segment on The Daily Show with Trevor Noah, an audience member asked the media mogul if she would ever consider opening a school in North America.
Her response garnered quite a lot of intrigue when she mentioned that she would actually consider it. Who knows, perhaps we will be looking at yet another Oprah school, filled with the best and the brightest.
The "Pizza" Party
Oprah said that what inspired her was the West Side's "Lights On". This program in West Side High, Newark, provides the school with recreational activities after hours every Friday. The media mogul surprised the whole school one Friday afternoon with pizzas for all. At least that's what they thought.
Oprah Winfrey handed out pizzas but also donated $500,000 to the high school after she heard of its after-school program. "I thought what could I do?" Oprah said to the students. "So I'm going to leave here tonight and leave you with half a million dollars."
The Book Club
Oprah's Book Club is filled with amazing reads by authors who have told many inspirational stories. This is why this club serves as a great backdrop for another Oprah initiative. The Angel Network took a select amount of books and distributed them to various communities full of underprivileged kids.
Book club awards were distributed in many communities including, Beijing, China, and St. Petersburg, Russia.
Oprah to the Rescue
In order to inspire and motivate more life-changers out there, Oprah created the "Rescuing the World's Girls" and "Live Your Best Life Tour" events.
These events, originally inspired by O, The Oprah Magazine, provide grants to organizations that seek to provide life-changing assistance for disadvantaged women and girls.
Education for All
Together with the Free the Children organization, Oprah and her Oprah's Angel Network have built over 55 schools in 12 countries. Each of these schools provides the best education for thousands of kids in developing countries and rural areas.
For the majority of kids, their living expenses are also completely covered, as well as school supplies, uniforms, and clothing. She really does like to go the extra mile.
