Wherever part of the world you’re from, you’re bound to know the name Oprah. She is an inspirational woman who broke traditions and set monumental achievements that seemed impossible at that time. When she was just starting out, no one saw the value of who she was but she never stopped believing in her vision. And, with her success came charity that went far and beyond.⠀

According to an article published on hellomagazine.com, ‘A philanthropist who set up two charitable organizations Oprah’s Angel Network and A Better Chance she donates at least ten percent of her massive income to good causes, mostly anonymously.⠀

The girl from Mississippi, who announced in 2002 she would be quitting her successful show after 20 years, dedicates her success to her black female forerunners: author Maya Angelou (now a close friend), 19th-century abolitionist Sojourner Truth, and entrepreneur Madame CJ Walker. “I believe I am the seed of the free,” she says. “I believe those women are a part of my legacy and the bridges that I crossed to get where I am today. They are looking out for me.”‘⠀

Oprah’s legacy is proof that having women behind you who believe and support your hustle boosts you towards your goals. Do you have women to thank for where you are now? Acknowledge them in the comments section!⠀
