Oprah brings her heart and soul into everything she is doing. Oprah is always willing to try new things and be creative. Oprah preaches self-empowerment but she also exemplifies and radiates it herself. It was her self-empowering attitude that made her emerge from a frequently abusive and bleak looking upbringing to become one of the most influential people in the world.

Meryl Streep is known for achieving her acting career by having a good work ethic and by being disciplined.
In “Harrison Bergeron” Harrison is not content and rebels against the society. He tries to remove the handicaps off of the people at the ballerina performance.

She wanted to have a good chance to become a noticeable, talented writer, and had achieved this success through her most knowledgeable novel, Their Eyes Were Watching God. After finishing college, completing many books, and taking many simple, low paying jobs, Hurston found herself poverty struck and charged for a crime. "After suffering many setbacks, including the allegation of committing an immoral act with a minor (which was later dropped), Hurston returned to the life of poverty," (Doe 1).
