Throwback Thursday: Oprah Goes From Mississippi To Miss Everything

oprahtbt
Oprah unveiled a big secret this week: her new collab with Starbucks! The marvelous mogul is launching a new #OprahChai in partnership with everyone’s guilty pleasure, Starbucks. Oprah has come a long way in the last 30 years. Let’s take a look back!

Born in Kosciusko, Mississippi, Oprah’s early years were filled with many traumatic events, and were far from easy. But in positive Oprah fashion, she turned these tough days into fuel to make a name for herself. Oprah’s latest joint effort along side Starbucks is just yet another one of the successes that has come from Oprah chasing her dreams, and always staying true to herself.

Even back in the day, Oprah had star potential.
 

Oprah took to Instagram to express her excitement, revealing:

“I looove tea! It’s a daily ritual and vital part of my morning. Chai is a favorite of mine. When Howard and Starbucks offered me a chance to create my very own tea blend, I thought that sounded like fun to the tenth power. To share one of my favorite things with you and support youth education at the same time is truly the perfect blend.”

What I love most about this collab, is EVERY purchase will benefit various childhood education charities that Oprah has hand selected. With the United States falling far behind when it comes to preschool, we have so much work to do as a country and it’s inspiring to see Oprah doing her part. Now, lets do ours! Take action below, kiddos!
