Oprah Winfrey has a lot to celebrate.

The talk show host was busy this weekend attending the commencement ceremonies of her “daughter-girls,” alumnae of the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls in South Africa and the first group of college grads from the school. 

Oprah Winfrey’s Wish for Her ‘Daughters’


On Sunday the media mogul shared a pic of three young women captioned, “Proud Happy Day!” Winfrey flew to Massachusetts to celebrate Tabitha Ramotwala’s graduation from Mount Holyoke, then made the trip to North Carolina the same day to celebrate Noluthando “Thando” Dlomo and Nompumelelo “Mpumi” Nobiva’s graduation from Johnson C. Smith University.  

Winfrey isn’t done either, Spelman’s next on her list.
