Oprah Winfrey wowed with her inspiration speech at the Is’thunzi Sabafaz, which translated means Dignity of Women.
Oprah Winfrey is not the queen of talk shows for no reason- she manages to move crowds with her powerful speeches.
As part of the Global Citizen Festival, which is in honour of the late Madiba, Oprah joined several other notable women, including Graça Mache, at the UJ Soweto Campus on Thursday.
The talk show host spoke about the empowerment of women, urging ladies to own their stories- no matter how sad they might be.
She also spoke about her time with Mandela and the school she opened in South Africa, TshisaLIVE reported.
"I said to Mandela that one day I will build a school and it will be a school for girls because I believe that women will save South Africa. We have just had our first doctor graduate," Oprah said.
Oprah continued by encouraging young people to follow their dreams and never give up.
"I want to say a word to the young dreamers. Mandela said a winner is a dreamer who never gives up. I say never give up. It is you who is going to bring about unprecedented innovation. Do not give up! Find a way," she was quoted saying.
