Oprah Visits Discovery Headquarters

Have you and your family been watching OWN? As one of our networks, OWN is part of the Discovery family and, yesterday, Oprah visited our headquarters to talk with Discovery employees! (This picture was taken from the front row by one of my colleagues.)

Oprah talked about the beginning of her network, gave career and life advice, and answered some questions posed by Discovery employees: “What is your secret talent?” “What was your best interview?” “When did you know you’d really made it?”

USE THE COMMENTS SECTION TO TELL US what you would ask Oprah, if you had the chance?

Anyway, my favorite part of the interview was her wrap up, because she shared her favorite quote with us. It is powerful:

“Everyone has the power for greatness, not for fame, but greatness, because greatness is determined by service.” Martin Luther King, Jr.

How will you be of service today?

    I don’t really listen to Oprah but she sounds cool.
    If I met her I would ask who her biggest role models in her life are.

    This is ABSOLUTELY an amazing thing for younger people like us. One of the U.S. influential women has brought some major attention to health and education.

    P.S. ikr I don’t sound like most kids my age. it was hard to use slang for what I was trying to say
