When Oprah won a beauty pageant, a local radio invited her to the studio to realize her dream of becoming a broadcast journalist. But it wasn’t easy. Oprah did not fit into the image that media titans wanted at the time. Nevertheless, she charmed audiences with her inner strength and generosity.

Once upon a time, there was a girl who always aimed high—and inspired others to do the same. Her name was Michelle. When Michelle was a little girl living on the Southside of Chicago, her mother always told her: “If it can be done, you can do it.” Though often full of self-doubt, Michelle was so smart and hardworking, that she skipped second grade, and in middle school, she graduated second in her class.

Now an author, mother, and lawyer, Michelle Obama is everything the younger version of herself dreamt of becoming.

Her mind was full of pictures of everything she’d ever seen or experienced. Temple was then diagnosed with autism. In the 1950s, doctors didn't know much about her condition, so they recommended that Temple be sent away. Temple’s mother insisted that she would thrive at home with the right support and the right education. Because of that courageous act, Temple grew up to change the world for millions of animals. Tune in to find out how she did it. Our narrator this episode is Kat Taylor, a philanthropist dedicated to restoring social justice and environmental well-being, and building a more inclusive world.
