When I initially thought about what female celebrity inspired me the most the two women that came to mind were Oprah Winfrey and Angelina Jolie but after considering the effect Oprah had/ or has on many people around the world (not just myself) I just knew that this woman was and still is a very influential character.
Brief summary of Oprah (Just incase you may not know)
- Born January 29, 1954 (age 59)
-American media proprietor, talk show host, actress, producer & philanthropist. Best known for her winning talk show 'The Oprah Winfrey Show', which is viewed by many.
-Ranked richest African-American in the 20th century.
- Called "one of the most influential people in the world" by TIME.
For me, Oprah Winfrey inspires me for many reasons however, the main thing that has a big impact on me is how she has always considered the sacrifice of the men and women in the civil rights movement. Setting up many different charities and foundations for the less fortunate women and children and also striving to help others, these points and many more are the reasons why Oprah Winfrey is an inspiration for me.
