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.

    Oprah!, still the richest black woman in the world. There is a difference between clean and dirty money any day. It is a curse to be the richest black woman in the world when you’re from a country rife with poverty, limited opportunities, poor women empowerment schemes and programs e.t.c. Same country you made the money via 410 moves. Oprah’s got a good legacy and purpose, that’s wealth. Aunty ode e soji!

    This woman knows how to live and live well. Big respect.
    May I just bitch for a sec? When it’s some vacuous tabloid nonsense bella, y’all will give us part one to part forty, post by post and just fill up the whole place with junk. Is it working? See Oprah’s own now, you now condensed into one meaty page. Cut the junk please, you will live long.
