Aside from climbing Mount Kilimanjaro, challenging the status quo, and running a small country, one of my life’s achivements also included going on the Oprah Winfrey Show. Being even considered for the Oprah Winfrey Show has proven that you either have endured a traumatic and traffic-stopping tragedy or have proven significant success against all odds. In either scenarios, Oprah deems your work and existence to be significant and inspirational. Naturally, I strived to appear on the show for the latter, which is why I am very upset to hear the latest news.
Oprah’s powers recently announced that the show will come to an end on September 9th, 2011, so she can focus her efforts on her cable network in LA. This gives me less than 2 years to do something humanitarian and inspirational that will rival altruisic movers and shakers. My creative juices are brewing as I have no time to spare.
Lauded as one of the most influential decision-makers in the world (remember the beef comment), Winfrey demonstrates leadership, inspiration, and success. She is truly a woman that I truly idolize and respect; I am eager to hear about her new ventures post 2011. Maybe by then, we will be bffs sparked by our conversation on her show and we will be discussing her ventures over tea… Oh a girl can dream, can’t she?
