On Sunday, January 7th, 2018, global sensational talk host, business woman, entrepreneur, actress, role model, and mentor, Oprah Winfrey, wowed us all with her speech at the Golden Globes. She highlighted women’s rights and racism, which is a whole lot to cover in 9 minutes, but unsurprisingly, Oprah did it with poise and what seemed like effortless perfection. Here’s some of our favourite quotes from the phenomenal and inspirational dictation.
“…what I know for sure is that speaking your truth is the most powerful tool we all have. And I’m especially proud and inspired by all the women who have felt strong enough and empowered enough to speak up and share their personal stories. Each of us in this room are celebrated because of the stories that we tell, and this year we became the story.”
“For too long, women have not been heard or believed if they dare speak the truth to the power of those men. But their time is up. Their time is up.”
“So I want all the girls watching here, now, to know that a new day is on the horizon! And when that new day finally dawns, it will be because of a lot of magnificent women, many of whom are right here in this room tonight, and some pretty phenomenal men, fighting hard to make sure that they become the leaders who take us to the time when nobody ever has to say “Me too” again.”
Oprah, who was submitted into sexual abuse at a young age, is one who is relatable to many individuals around the world, and an inspiration to all.
However, there is one particular political figure in the news these days, who also had something to say about the mogul’s impeccable speech.
“Yeah, I’ll beat Oprah,” Mr Trump told reporters during a meeting on Tuesday, January 8th, 2018. “I like Oprah but I don’t think she’s going to run. I don’t think she’s going to run. I knew her very well,” he added.
Apparently, Oprah has taken running for President into consideration recently, but speculation can not confirm as to whether she will actually run or not.
What are your thoughts? Should another celebrity run for President?
