When someone mentions the name Oprah in a conversation, you dont need to ask for her surname to know who they mean, or wonder who she might be she is recognised globally by just her first name. Oprah Winfrey is an American television personality, entrepreneur, actress, global media leader and philanthropist. Nicknamed Queen of All Media, the business mogul has become one of the most well-recognised figures in the world with unparalleled influence. A leading figure of the entertainment industry, Winfrey is known as the pioneer of television confessions. Hosting her own talk show, The Oprah Winfrey Show, Winfrey attracted an impressive average of 1213 million viewers each weekday during peak years. With an estimated net worth of USD 2.6 billion, the one-woman powerhouse became the first black female billionaire in 2003. She has been on Time Magazines list of the 100 most influential People of the 20th Century six times; more than any other individual. Overcoming adversities throughout her life professionally and personally, the media tycoon has consistently broken barriers and used the media to transform herself into a global presence and a household name.

Winfrey famously rejects the idea of being a brand which is in itself part of her brand. She has stated on multiple occasions that she is a person, not a brand, fearing she would lose the rare connection she had with her audience. Later, she realised that she was the brand.
I was once afraid of people saying, Who does she think she is? Now I have the courage to stand and say, This is who I am. Equally as important, is how she took this admired brand and capitalised on it giving rise to diverse projects and products across a plethora of channels. Yet, despite her immense success, it hasnt always been a smooth ride. Born into rural poverty in Kosciusko, Mississippi, Winfrey had a difficult upbringing. With a single teenage mother who worked as a housemaid, Winfrey lived with her grandmother until she was six years old. They were reportedly so poor that she went to school wearing dresses sown from potato sacks. Winfreys childhood was tainted by more than economic hardship; she faced several traumatic experiences as a young girl. Winfrey herself has revealed that she fell victim to sexual abuse and was raped by several family relatives when she was as young as nine. At 14, she became pregnant as a result of the harrowing events she endured. Even worse, the baby was born prematurely and died during early infancy. In 1986, she addressed this publicly for the first time on her show. Following this experience, she moved to Nashville to live with her father and went on to study at Tennessee State University.
Winfreys problematic beginnings would inevitably trigger deep-rooted issues and trauma. It was during the debut of Piers Morgans US talk show Piers Morgan Tonight in 2011 that she disclosed feeling suicidal at the time, reach a point of such desperation that she attempted to drink detergent. She also spoke about later viewing losing the baby as having another chance at life.
