    Winfrey visits Iowa and South Carolina with Barack and Michelle Obama.
    During a December 2000 visit with Nelson Mandela, Oprah pledged to build a school in South Africa. As that commitment broadened, she established The Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy Foundation, to which she has contributed more than $40 million toward the creation of the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls—South Africa, which opened in January 2007
    Hurricane Katrina , New Orleans, 2005
    Winfrey decided to cut her vacation short to visit the victims. She called upon her friends Julia Roberts and Jaime Foxx for support. "I was sitting at home feeling frustrated and useless, like so many other people, so I came down to personally assess how I could best be of service,“ Oprah.com indicates $10 million of her won money was committed to rebuild homes.

    “That's some bonus. Oprah Winfrey is treating her entire staff and their families to a Mediterranean cruise. Transportation, food, drinks, activities, the works.”
    Oprah regrets her 1988 liquid diet
    "I had literally starved myself for four months — not a morsel of food — to get into that pair of size 10 Calvin Klein jeans," Winfrey recalled Monday. By Michael A. Mariant, AP file
    “I mean this is a woman that came from nothing to rise up to be the most powerful woman, I think, in the world…she has a loyal following; she has creditability; she has talent; and she’s done it on her own to become fabulously wealthy and fabulously powerful.”

  • 8. Interpretations
    Only Winfrey understands the labor, sacrifice and injustice she has had to endure to be the successful leader she is today.
    Her commitment to serve and return a portion of what she has been able to build for herself to the world is an inspiration.
    Her curiosity, assertiveness, and determination are personal traits I am encouraged to develop.
    Business acumen, networking abilities and finding a “niche market” are professional areas I would aim to master based on this case study.
    Mastering effective communication skills is key in all areas of business.
