This essay is a summary of the history of Oprah Winfrey and her philanthropic efforts. The essence of the essay is to describe why I believe she is the best person for the Ethics and Responsibility Star of the year.
To this end, the essay describes her poor childhood, wrought with myriad of problems, and her eventual rise to become one of TV’s best-known personalities. It also describes the efforts she has taken to help those less fortunate than she is, through the different organization she sponsors. Though what she has done is not limited to what I have written in this essay, I believe it will be enough to convince one that indeed, she does deserve the star.
