2020 is finally here and as we embark on a new decade, many of us are setting goals and affirming to ourselves that it will come true. Between the books, podcasts, and videos about actualizing your dreams, sometimes we need a more intimate connection with the tools and mindset needed to find our focus in a way that is both positive and healthy.
For the past 4 decades, there is one woman who has single-handedly revolutionized journalism, altruism, and even how we see ourselves. Her transparency and vulnerability astonished the masses, as she created spaces for people to come and do the same. To this day #Oprah Winfrey still uses her platform to uplift, inspire, and empower not only black women but women of all ethnicities. When you look at all of her accomplishments, it is clear that she has a distinct vision for herself and the world around her.
Are you currently a student? Want to be laser-focused and in tune with your wellness like Oprah? Well, 2020 just might be the year you hear it straight from her as Black Girl Digital will be giving One (1) Lucky Winner the opportunity to see Oprah speak at her 2020 Vision Tour: Your Life in Focus at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY on February 8th, 2020 with the CEO of Black Girl Digital Latoya Shambo. Oh, and did we mention that Micheal Obama will be the special guest speaker and it's SOLD OUT? #oprahtour2020 #BlackGirlDigitalInspires2020
