Oprah and Malala inspires us with their will to succeed and be heard!

Ladies! Does your dream seem impossible to reach? Do you seriously think you can’t change society? Then sit back tight and read how these 2 inspiring women achieved their dreams and how they single-handedly changed our society for good! Maybe these stories will inspire you like it inspired us.

Malala Yousafzai a Nobel laureate who fought to be heard!

Although the Teenage Pakistani girl faced death, the children’s right activist is still fighting for change in the world. She wrote blogs because she wanted to be heard. considering the conditions in which she lived, the fear and terror just to know that there are people out there who expects her never to be educated. But still Malala strived hard to be heard. This shows us courage because no one else dared to report from such a controversial angle – detailing her life under Taliban occupation. In 2012 some Talibans assaulted and shot her when she was only 15 years old. She suffered from serious injuries in the head and neck. But Malala fought and within 1 year, after her recovery the brave girl founded in cooperation with UNESCO the ‘Malala Fund’ to promote the right to education. She is the youngest in history to receive the Nobel Peace Prize. So ladies – let’s appreciate the freedom we have her in Austria, in Western Europe. Let our freedom not be reduced to slick instagram pictures where we claim to express our ourselves as free and independent. Freedom is the most important gift we can have.  Malala fought for hers, lets preserve ours with dignity. Wikipedia page > 

 Oprah Winfrey fought all odds to experience her dream come true.

The African American billionaire made it to one of the most influential American TV personalities, philanthropists and producers of all times. Ever heard of Americas number one talk show “The Oprah Winfrey Show”? Sure! Her fame, her humour and her serenity – that’s all we get to see. Over the last few years, she retired her famous show to reach for a higher ground, where she founded the OWN channel (Oprah Winfrey Network). Her platform is giving African American a safe space to shine. But what is Oprah’s story? After a troubled adolescence in a small farming community, where she was sexually abused by a number of male relatives, she still didn’t lose hope, nor did she let sexual abuse steal her identity. She fought for her dreams, kept on working and landed a job in the radio while still being in high school. That’s where everything starts. Oprah’s discipline to pursue her dream at a very young age, inspires us. So ladies, do not waste your precious time pursing things that at the end would not make you fulfilled. Wikipedia page >
