Oprah is now rich and successful. However, the “Queen Of All Media” started with merely anything. As not only she had to fight poverty but also numerous other challenges that came early in her life. Due to financial struggle, young Oprah wore dresses made up of the potato sack and was often made fun of. Daughter of Vernita Lee and Vernon Winfrey, she loved interviewing her corncob doll and crows as a child. So her career decision hardly surprised her family members especially her grandmother, Hattie Mae (Presley) Lee.
From an early age, Oprah started excelling at her job. Her popularity increased immensely after she started working on “The Oprah Winfrey Show”. The show went on to receive as many as 47 Daytime Emmy Awards.
As of 2017, she has become one of the most successful African American. Oprah Winfrey net worth is estimated to be 3.1 billion USD.
