Oprah's Leadership Academy for Girls
There are few experiences that have changed my life. I have been blessed with the opportunity to travel the world and learn about cultures that, before, I had only seen on television. I will always remember my visit to Oprah Winfrey's Leadership Academy for Girls in Johannesburg, South Africa. The girls chosen to attend this school were the smartest girls in their communities - the cream of the crop. They were so excited to be going to class in this beautiful new state-of-the-art school that would set them on the path to be the leaders of tomorrow.
This picture is one of my favorites. It was taken on the first day all of the journalists came on campus to tour the classrooms. The students gathered around me for a picture and I remember them being so energetic and grateful for the opportunity to go to the Academy. I love hearing updates about them because I know they are going to take over the world! ~ Shaun
