Just like millions of other people around the world, Oprah Winfrey has been living in quarantine during the COVID-19 pandemic. In fact, the celebrated TV host has barely left her home in Montecito, California, excepting a couple of occasions.
Now, Oprah Winfrey has shared news on her general well-being, and in these troubling times, it couldn’t have been better.
Writing on her new platform, Oprah Daily, Winfrey revealed that she feels like a “superhuman” after getting two shots of the COVID-19 vaccine.
These days, Oprah’s finally settled down after a very long and very successful career. And boy, has she earned the time to unwind!
Born on January 29, 1943 in the rural town of Kosciusko, Mississippi, Winfrey’s early years in the small farming community were unstable. She was raised by her grandmother, but eventually left to live with her mother.
Oprah’s life with her mother was troubled and at times terrible. By 14 she was pregnant, and she ended up moving to live with her father in Nashville.
Tragically, Oprah gave birth to a premature son who died shortly after birth.
Plenty of people would be devastated by the trauma and ready to give up on life following such an event. However, Oprah decided to channel her pain into something positive.
By 17, she had turned into a young woman with confidence and went on to win the Miss Black Tennessee beauty pageant.
