    Oprah Winfrey read by Gayle King

    Oprah Winfrey read by Gayle King

    Once upon a time, there was a girl whose little voice grew to make a big difference. Her name was Oprah.

    When Oprah won a beauty pageant, a local radio invited her to the studio to realize her dream of becoming a broadcast journalist. But it wasn’t easy. Oprah did not fit into the image that media titans wanted at the time.

    Nevertheless, she charmed audiences with her inner strength and generosity. And as Oprah’s fame grew, she used her platform to take care of others. She built libraries, started scholarships, and founded schools. For decades, Oprah’s empathetic, authentic stories have helped others open up about their own.


    About the Narrator:

    Gayle King is co-host of CBS THIS MORNING, and an accomplished television journalist, delivering original reporting to all CBS News broadcasts and platforms. She is also editor-at-large of the award-winning O, the Oprah Magazine.

    Michelle Obama read by Pearl Thusi

    Michelle Obama read by Pearl Thusi

    Once upon a time, there was a girl who always aimed high—and inspired others to do the same. Her name was Michelle.

    When Michelle was a little girl living on the Southside of Chicago, her mother always told her: “If it can be done, you can do it.” Though often full of self-doubt, Michelle was so smart and hardworking, that she skipped second grade, and in middle school, she graduated second in her class.

    She went on to study law at Harvard and eventually became the first Black First Lady of the United States. Now an author, mother, and lawyer, Michelle Obama is everything the younger version of herself dreamt of becoming.

    About the Narrator:

    Pearl Thusi is a South African actress, model, television host, and radio personality. She currently stars as the title character in Queen Sono, Netflix’s first African original series.

When I listen to this I have it in my head and I sit there staring not blinking because I get so interested. I am now vegetarian because of Greta Ginsburg. All of these people inspire me to do something. Thank you for making this podcast.when I’m bored this is what I listen too I lie in bed staring at the ceiling having my little movie in my head and thinking of ways I can change and be like them.
