It’s hard to look at this stunning woman and imagine her having low self esteem, but like many of us, she experienced self-doubt. Listen to her tear-jerking interview with Aunt Oprah and she talks self esteem and the small joys of life.
She was the world’s first FAB billionaire, and the first FAB woman to own a television network.
There are many lessons to be learned from her life, and she always has a positive pearl of wisdom to share on her shows and in interviews. She encourages us all to ‘live our best life’, and she lives that motto every day.

Even if you didn’t know her name, you have probably seen her face on TV modeling in The Victoria’s Secret fashion show, or on a magazine at the grocery store, or on the runway modeling for the world’s top designers.
She is currently the most successful African American model, and made history in 2007 as the youngest person to appear on the cover of Vogue. She is also the first black model to walk in a Gucci fashion show for eight years.
The fashion industry is notorious for it’s lack of diversity in high fashion photos and runway shows, and not just with ethnicity. There is still a lot of work to be done in embracing different body types, which she is an advocate for.
She also does her share of charity work, and helps mentor teen girls who are moving from foster care into society.
Like Major General Marcia Anderson, she is making military history. She was recently named Commanding Officer of The USS Mitscher, a Norfolk-based, guided missile destroyer.
Similar to Major Anderson, she did not have initial intentions of a military career. Her dad suggested she give the military a chance, and she never looked backed. Years later her hard work paid off, and last Friday she made history as the first FAB Woman to serve as a commanding officer of an Arleigh Burke-class Aegis guided missile destroyer.
