Oprah Winfrey was born on January 29, 1954 to an unmarried teenage mother in Kosciusko, Mississippi. She spent her first six years with her maternal grandmother living in rural surroundings. She was often forced to wear dresses made of potato sacks because of the poverty they faced. She had a miserable childhood often being subjected to sexual abuse by her uncle and other family members. But because of the education she received in Nashville, Tennessee she was able to put her talents to good use and excel as an honors student.
She was voted the Most Popular girl in School and was recognised for her ability to speak in speech contests. She had a flair for talking fluently and this helped her gain many friends in school and throughout her college years. She studied Communication at the Tennessee State University by securing a full scholarship. Her first job was working at the local grocery store.
