Posted: October 11, 2018 at 12:35 pm   /   Opinion

Of all the women in the world, Oprah Winfrey is a standout. She is a perfect blend of the beauty and brain. Hers is the validation of the fact that the DNA of women is not wired to be an intellectual vegetable nor are her hands veined only to chop vegetables. But rather, when placed […]
