Back in 2007 Oprah opened the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls in South Africa. These lucky young women have, we assume, been given a fantastic education as well as many unique opportunities.

Now, another atypical opportunity is coming their way. The founder of their school, Oprah, will be teaching a class titled, “Life 101” to 12th grade girls this fall. I don’t know about you, but my befuddled and awkward self could have used some life lessons back in high school from a mentor like Oprah.

Ms. Winfrey said about her new role as teacher, “I’m going back this fall to teach a class; calling it Life 101… All the stuff I wish someone had told me about how the world works. Should be fun since I love to teach. And they’re like sponges. Like 12th graders everywhere, this first class is both anxious and excited about going to college.”

Oprah went on to say, “When Chris Rock was last on the show he said ‘real wealth is having options.’I now stress to my girls that education prepares you to have options. Without it you have none.”

Wouldn’t you just love it if there were a live webcam in that classroom? In truth, Oprah has served as a long distance mentor to millions of people through her show, magazine and other mediums. No doubt these young women will benefit from her knowledge and experience.
