in 2007 Winfrey started the school to provide girls from poor neighborhoods in South Africa with an opportunity to obtain a stellar education. Winfrey hand picked all of the students who attends her Oprah Winfrey Learning Academy for girls. The first class has since graduated and 100% of the young women were accepted into college with 10% coming to colleges in the United States.
