A young girl from rural Zimbabwe, who lived her dream of moving to America, is going to school and getting a degree. Tererai Trent, this month received a special accolade. She was acknowledged as the most favorite guest of Hollywood’s great lady, Oprah Winfrey.

Trent’s story has been chronicled in both The New York Times and a book called “Half the Sky”. Winfrey described Trent as a woman who “epitomizes everything I’ve been trying to say on this show for 25 years.”

Oprah had one more surprise for her favorite guest – a $1.5 million donation towards a school Trent plans to build in Zimbabwe. Save the Children will work with students and parents in the village. An estimated four thousand kids will benefit.
