Who would think that a girl awarded the name “Oprah” after the biblical character in the Book of Ruth, nicknamed "The Preacher" by her Grandma Hattie Mae, and donned Queen of Potato Sack Dresses by grade school bullies would later also carry the name
"Academy-Award Nominee", "First Black Woman Billionaire", "Highest Civilian Honor" and now, "Godmother" of Holland America’s newest ship, Nieuw Statendam?
Oprah Winfrey and her lifelong best friend Gayle King, offered lessons on
"How To Live Your Best Life" because Oprah, herself, is a living example.
Shout out to Holland America and Westways Magazine for the sponsorship!
