“Dear, @oprah I know the chances of you reading this is second to none but I just wanted to share this pivotal moment with you. I wrote so many letters to you as a child, hoping you’ll adopt me and I’ll one day be a talk show host just like you. You see, this was my dream as a little girl, to have a voice that unites people like me, to tell stories, and change the world through television.”
“I never got a response from you but I watched you more and I knew that one day if I stayed true to my path if I worked hard the universe will reward me. This year has been my year of manifestation, God’s goodness is running after me.”
