This weekend, since you’re already here, whether you’re a male or female, I highly encourage you to watch Oprah’s inspirational speech.
Because in your fellow sisters, daughters, nieces, baby sister cousin, wife, aunt, mom and grandmomma, there’s a little girl in us that deserves to believe that with hardwork, dreams do come true.
Regardless of skin colour, ethnicity, religion, which country you were born in, whether you’re straight or lesbian and irregardless of your grades – whether you’re a straight ‘A’s’ student or not.
Afterall… not everyone is made up for ballet. Not everyone is (also) made up for maths.
‘Maybe life isn’t about avoiding the bruises. Maybe it’s about collecting the scars to prove we showed up for it. -unknown’
To those who rolled your eyes and say she’s a hypocrite and whatnot. You cannot deny the fact that her speech will help girls rise up to do things of their choice right and better and of course… It’s cynical people like you that will not make the world a better place.
