Oprah takes time out of her life to help people and try something new.Oprah wanted to help the earth and try to connect people together with a mix of needs and personalities. </li></ul>

Oprah has the courage to stay in Milwaukee with her mother. </li></ul>
  11. 11. Oprah’s Dream Room <ul><li>I choose this room because this is Oprah’s studio.This is the place were all the broadcasting and the producing starts. This place is called Horst. Oprah shows courage by having this place to go on t.v. Oprah likes this place because she likes to talk and make a difference in someone's life. She does this by talking to the people who come in about their life and their experiences. </li></ul>
  12. 12. Oprah Wins!! <ul><li>The medal that I picked out for Oprah has a picture of a blue jay on it. I pick this out to show that you are free to live how you want to be. You don’t have to do something because someone tells you so. This, I think is the way that Oprah interprets life. I also picked this medal to show that this bird is staying on one branch but might fly away. That was how Oprah’s life was as a little kid, always moving around. One other reason that I picked this medal was because of the ridges around the edges. When I look at those I think life has some rough times but some parts of life are meant to happen so we can learn from them. </li></ul>
