Aside her parents, Oprah Winfrey is her role model. She admires her courage and determination to be successful despite what she went through when she was young. It didn’t stop her from achieving her goals. She has always been a gogetter and today we can speak of her as one of the most powerful and wealthiest women in America. Her goal to fight for the rights of children and women is outstanding. She has contributed immensely to the development and success of America and can also be acknowledged as one of the most influential people in America

Araba Sey’s message to the youth and to all those that look up to me is that they should never give up on their dreams no matter the circumstance. Success does not come on a silver platter. It is a gradual process and it takes determination,constant hardworking and perseverance to get there. If there is something they are interested in or passionate about they should go for it or take it up and believe in themselves. Each and everyone has the potential of reaching success.
