Billionaire Talk show host, author, philanthropist, actress and media personality, Oprah Winfrey recently concluded her college graduation tour which began in May, at Stanford University, California.
The College graduation tour which is associated with the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls in South Africa took place in Elon University, Johnson C. Smith University, Skidmore College, Smith College, Agnes Scott College, Oregon State University, Colorado College and Stanford University.
Oprah announced the end of the College tour at Stanford University in a video posted on Instagram. She was seen standing with one of her daughter-girl Sade a Nigerian beneficiary of OWLAG alongside her godson Will, who both graduated this year.
The tour which commenced in May 2017, provides the opportunity for Oprah to visit schools where graduates of OWLAG completed their college education.
The “daughter-girls” as Oprah fondly refers to graduates from the Academy, are opportune to celebrate their college graduation with “Mom-Oprah” as they refer to the philanthropist, through the college tour.
During her commencement address at Smith College, Oprah discussed her long career in television, as well as the secret to her success as a media mogul. She also urged the new graduates to put themselves first as they pursued their careers.
