The journey of Oprah Winfrey #infographic

On January 29, 1954, on an isolated farm in Kosciusko, Mississippi, Oprah Gail Winfrey was born to Vernita Lee and Vernon Winfrey. Her name was intended to be Bible orpha, but she was known from birth as Oprah because of the complexity of orthodoxy and pronunciation. Winfrey's unmarried parents divided up shortly after her birth and left her for her maternal grandma on the farm.

As a kid, Winfrey was entertained before a farm animal by "play acting," and she learned to read under her grandmother's rigorous guidance at the age of two and a half. Winfrey left the kindergarten after writing a note to the college's first day stating she belonged to the first grade. When she was two years old, she was also in her church congregation about "When Jesus stood on Easter Day." After that year, she was promoted to 3rd grade.

Winfrey was sent south to join her mother and two half-brothers in the ghetto in Milwaukee, a very poor, dangerous neighbourhood at the age of six. At the age of twelve, she was sent to Nashville with her father. She began talking at social conferences and churches, feeling secure and happy for a short time, gaining $500 for a talk once. Winfrey was called home by her mother, and she had to leave her father's home safe, and then she realized she wanted to be "paid to talk." Winfrey had a poor urban lifestyle as a young teenager, and her problems were compounded by sexual abuse, which began at the age of nine, by men that others in her family had trusted. Her mother had a weird job and had little time to oversee.
