Billionaire Oprah Winfrey Tells Graduates To Focus On Service In Three Commencement Addresses


Media mogul and self-made billionaire Oprah Winfrey hit the graduation circuit this year, giving three commencement addresses in May. In her speeches at Agnes Scott, Skidmore and Smith colleges she focused on living a fulfilling life, giving back through service and following your “inner truth.”

Winfrey is the third richest self-made woman in the country, according to Forbes’ recently released list of America’s Richest Self-Made Women, and one of only seventeen self-made female billionaires in the nation. Raised in poverty in rural Mississippi, Winfrey went on to become a daytime TV host and then started her own TV network, OWN, which had its most-watched year in 2016. Her estimated $2.9 billion fortune is mostly made up of her earnings from her years as a talk show host.
