Famous Failures: Oprah Winfrey


Oprah Winfrey was born in Mississippi to be a teenage mother. She grew up living with her grandmother in a state of poverty. By the age of 6, she would go back to living with her mother who had another child. During those years of her life, she was molested by her uncle and cousin. At the age of 13 she would run away from home and by 14 had given birth to a premature baby that passed away shortly after birth.


Oprah overcame a tough childhood and several major setbacks in life before succeeding. By 29 she would take over a show called AM Chicago and eventually become the Oprah Winfrey show. She is now a multibillionaire and a household name.
