I’ve been a fan of Oprah for years. To say that she had some impact on my life would be an understatement. When I was younger, I remember watching her talk show with my mother and grandmother after school. I really didn’t understand much, but I did know that Oprah Winfrey talked to a lot of famous people and gave away a lot of cars, lol. As I got older, I began to enjoy and learn from both her celebrity and non celebrity interviews. I also began to understand her passion for wanting to share her knowledge and wealth with the world. By high school, I was fascinated with peoples life stories (famous and non famous), and I also really enjoyed interviewing people for the stories I wrote for my high school newspaper. I thought I was on my way to becoming a mini Oprah. 😉
As the years passed, I blazed my own trail and continued to pursue my dreams of becoming a journalist (all while keeping up with Oprah, of course 🙂 . I continued to watch her talk show and read her books. Looking back, I was able to fulfill some, if not most, of my journalistic goals. And here I am today a blogger- the new age version of a journalist, lol. I’m still writing and I’m still living out my dreams, just like Oprah.
So imagine my excitement when I was contacted about covering both days of Oprah’s The Life You Want Weekend Tour as media! Excited much?! I had to read the email several times for it to sink in. I am BEYOND grateful and excited about this news. To be in the same room as Oprah is one thing, but to be able to soak up her wisdom is another. And to do so as press/media? Yeah, pretty much a dream come true.
Oprah, along with Iyanla Vanzant, Deepak Chopra, and 3 other “Life Trailblazers” will be a part of this event as well. I’m in for 2 days of inspiration, motivation and life changing moments. I am ready to receive it and I cannot wait to share my experience with you all!
So tell me, have you attended or do you plan to attend Oprah’s The Life You Want Weekend in your city? Do you plan on attending the one in DC? Let me know!
Be sure to follow me on social media. I will be sharing my 2-day experience with you on all my social media outlets. Wishing you a blessed and productive day. Until tomorrow, stay blessed and be safe…XO!
