"Often, wealthy celebrities are known for their conspicuous consumption, and Oprah , who dreamed of being "a spendin' fool" when she was a teenager, is not opposed to spending her money on things she wants."
This is an example of Oprah helping others and how nonselfish she is. She truly cares for others and the world.
One word that describe Oprah would be fearless. She isn't afraid of failing or trying something new. She's always taking challenges and helping others get through challenges.
