Nigerian-New York based actor. Luvvie Ajayi ended 2016 with story that touch the heart as she achieve her dream after several years of hard work and hope. Who says dream don’t come through? Guess you have not clicked the right button yet.
Luvvie posted on Twitter five years ago that her dream is to meet Oprah Winfrey when the former TV host and media mogul knows her name. Guess what? After that wish in tweet form she was opportune to be in same room with Oprah for about 7 times but never make attempt to introduce herself. Wow! You say…
Interestingly, this year (2016) Oprah Winfrey picked Luvvie as one of the people on the Supersoul 100 list, recognized for “elevating humanity”. She also got to interview Oprah two months after making the list.
Read her story below:
2016Luvlights – For a long time, I’ve said that I will meet @Oprah Winfrey when she already knows my name, so even though we’ve been in the same room together at least 7 times over the years, I never tried to introduce myself. Well, this year, it happened. Oprah handpicked 100 people who “elevate humanity” as part of her first #Supersoul100 list and I was one of them. She did a brunch for us in LA in April and I met her there. It was glorious. And then in June, her team had me back to interview her for OWN on the @OWNTV lot. *holy ghost faint* my locs were gone by then so Oprah grabbed my head during the interview and afterwards!
Dreams come true and I’ve boldly spoken some of mine just to see them unfold right before my eyes. This has been a year of my dreams becoming reality and I’m beyond grateful. God is good. HEY OPRAH, girl! That actually happened. *swoon*
Luvvie Ajayi is the New York Times best seller I’m judging you: The Do Better Manual. She was nominated for Goodreads Choice Award in 2016 for the category of BEST HUMOR which she lost to Amy Schumer of The Girl With Lower Back Tattoo.
How inspiring … never give up on your dreams no matter the challenges.
