I am nominating Oprah Winfrey to the Honor Roll because she is a very good person. Oprah does a T.V. show talking to people about their past. She helps them cope with their losses, and she shares in other poeple's joy. Oprah understands what people are going through because she once went through some of the same things herself when she was young. She understands that some people are having a hard time in life. She can relate to those tough times herself. She can also relate to other people's joy because she knows what it is like to accomplish great things after having to overcome great obstacles. When she was younger she had to do the same thing. I think Oprah Winfrey is a real role model. She shows real determination. She is a women who had a hard childhood, but worked hard and made the rest of her life a great success!!
