Amancio Ortega Gaona, born March 28, 1936, age 75, in Busdongo de Arbas-Villamanín, Castille and León, Spain, Spain is a Spanish fashion entrepreneur. He is the founder, along with his then-wife Rosalía Mera, and chairman of the Inditex Group. He is ranked by Forbes as Spain's richest man; Europe's second richest man; and the seventh richest man in the world in 2011. He currently lives with his second wife in a discreet apartment building in the centre of A Coruña.

Ortega arrived atA Coruña, Spain, at the age of 14, due to the job of his father, a railway worker. Starting as a gofer in various shirt stores in A Coruña, Galicia, in 1972 he founded Confecciones Goa (his initials in reverse), which made bathrobes. In 1975 he opened the first store in what would grow into the enormously popular chain of fashion stores called  Zara. He owns 59.29% of the Inditex group (Industrias de Diseño Textil Sociedad Anónima) which includes the brands Zara, Massimo Dutti, Oysho, Zara Home, Kiddy's Class, Tempe, Stradivarius, Pull and Bear/Often and Bershka and has more than 14,000 employees.

Ortega keeps a very low profile and there are practically no photographs of him (except from one photo published at the Inditex website). He refuses to wear a tie, and likes to dress in blue jeans and T-shirts. He is said to take a very active part in the production and design process in the company.

When he made a public appearance in 2000 - as part of the warm-up prior to floating his company on the stock market in 2001 - it made headlines in the Spanish financial press. However, he has never given an interview, and his secrecy has led to the publication of books such as Amancio Ortega: DE CERO A ZARA (From Zero to Zara).

Ortega, announced his imminent retirement from the fast-fashion giant Inditex, parent company of the Zara chain, stating that he will ask Inditex vice-president and CEO Pablo Isla to take his place at the helm of the textile empire.

          Mukesh Dhirubhai Ambani,  born on 19 April 1957, in Aden, Colony of Aden (now Yemen), is an Indian business magnate is the current chairman and managing director of Reliance Industries, the largest private sector enterprise in India, a Fortune 500 company, and one of the largest private sector conglomerates in the world. His personal stake in Reliance Industries is 48%.

          In 2010, he was named among the most powerful people in the world by Forbes in its list of "68 people who matter most" As of 2011, he is the second richest man in Asia and the ninth richest man in the world with a personal wealth of US $27 billion. In 2007, a strong rally in the Indian stock market and the appreciation of the Indian rupee boosted the market capitalisation of Reliance group companies, briefly making him the world’s richest man. According to Forbes Magazine forecasts, he is expected to regain the title of the richest man in the world in 2014.

          He is a member of the board of director of Bank of America Corporation and a present member of the international advisory board of Council on Foreign Relations.

           

          Early life and education

          Mukesh Ambani is the eldest son of Dhirubhai Ambani , the late founder of Reliance Industries. He has a brother, Anil, and two sisters.

          The Ambani family lived in a two bedroom apartment in Bhuleshwar, Mumbai until the 1970s. Dhirubhai Ambani then purchased a 14-floor apartment block called 'Sea Wind' in Colaba, where, until recently, Mukesh and Anil each lived with their families on different floors.

          (In 2010 Mukesh and his wife and children moved into a private home that is 27 stories high ... more about that later ....)

           

          Anil Ambani is also a billionaire and owns a competing company, Reliance Anil Dhirubhai Ambani Group. The two brothers have had clashes over business. 

          Mukush Ambani is the 9th wealthest man in the world.

           
          Career

          He joined Reliance Industries in 1981. He initiated Reliance's backward integration journey from textiles into polyester fibres and further into petrochemicals, petroleum refining and going up-stream into oil and gas exploration and production.

          Ambani set up one of the largest and most complex information and communications technology initiatives in the world in the form of Reliance Infocomm Limited (now Reliance Communications Limited).

          Ambani directed and led the creation of the world’s largest grassroots petroleum refinery at Jamnagar, India, with a current capacity of 660,000 barrels per day (33 million tonnes per year) integrated with petrochemicals, power generation, port and related infrastructure.

          He owns the Indian Premier League team, the Mumbia Indians.

          Mukesh Ambani

          $27 Billion

          • Age: 53
          • Title: Chairman
          • Organization: Reliance Industries
          • Source: petrochemicals, oil & gas, inherited and growing
          • Residence: Mumbai, India
          • Country of citizenship: India
          • Education: Dropout, Stanford University; BA/BS, University of Bombay
          • Marital Status: Married
          • Children: 3

          Here some interesting reading while you are waiting for your investments to hit.

          Mukesh Ambani owns the most expensive residential home in the world. 

          It costs nearly US $2 billion dollars to build it.

          Antilia is named after the mythical island in the Atlantic, Antillia.

          The Antilia building is situated on a 4,532 square metres (48,780 sq ft) plot at Altamont Road on the famed Cumballa Hill South Mumbai, India, where land prices are upward of US $10,000 per square metre.

          In August 2008,Altamont Road was the 10th most expensive street in the world at US $25,000/sq m (US $2,336 per sq foot)

          This home is a private 27 story building (actually it is 60 stories tall condensed into 27 stories with extra high ceilings).

           

          The structure was designed by U.S. architects using principles of Vaastu, Indian traditional geomancy akin to Chinese feng shui, to maximize "positive energy." No two floor plans are alike, and the materials used in each level vary widely.

          The home includes:

          • 400,000 square feet (37,000 m2) of living space.
          • Parking space for 168 cars.
          • A one-floor vehicle maintenance facility.
          • 9 elevators in the lobby.
          • 1 helipad and an air traffic control facility.
          • Health spa, yoga studio, small theatre with a seating capacity for 50 on the eighth floor, multiple swimming pools, three floors of hanging gardens, and a ballroom.
          • An ice room infused with man-made snow flurries.

           

          Construction

          Antilia was designed byChicago based architects, Perkins & Will. The Melbourne-based construction company Leighton Holdings began constructing it, but it has been finished by another company. The structural design consultants are Sterling Engineering Consultancy, Mumbai.

          The home was also designed to survive an 8-richter scale earthquake.

          Various construction controversies have been connected to the home.

          In 2007 the Maharashtra government said the structure is illegal because the land's owner, the Waqf Board, had no right to sell it. Mukesh then obtained a No Objection Certificate from the Waqf Board for Rs 1.6 million (U$36,100) and began construction.

          In regards to the three helipads, the Indian Navy said it will not allow the construction of helipads on Mumbai buildings, while The Environment Ministry said the helipads violate local noise laws.

          Indian media frequently reported that Antilia is the world's most expensive home costing US $1 billion. (later reports indicate the cost as US $2 billion)

          Thomas Johnson, director of marketing at architecture firm Will and Hirsch Bedner Associates that was consulted with by Reliance during building floor plan design, was cited by Forbes Magazine as estimating the cost of the residence at nearly $2 billion.

          In June 2008, a Reliance spokesman told the  New York Times that it will cost $50–$70 million to build.

          Upon completion in 2010, media reports again speculated that, due to increasing land prices in the area, the tower may now be worth as much as US $1 billion.

           


          "It's a stupendous show of wealth, it's kind of positioning business tycoons as the new maharajah of India."
           
          Hamish McDonald author of Ambani & Sons: A History of the Business

           

          Some Indians are proud of the "ostentatious house," while others see it as "shameful in a nation where many children go hungry." Dipankar Gupta, a sociologist at New Delhi's Jawaharlal Nehru University, opined that "such wealth can be inconceivable" not only in Mumbai, "home to some of Asia's worst slums," but also in a nation with 42 percent of the world's underweight children younger than five.


          Could not resist ... here is one more article about this house.

          Billion Dollar House – Ultimate Luxury or Living Hell?

          November 2, 2007  by JS  ~ Smart Money Daily

          This past week Mukesh Ambani, thanks to a big jump in the Indian stock market, was handed the title of "Richest Man in the World" but sadly for him a day later it turned out to be a miscalculation.

          Even so, Ambani’s correct net worth is estimated in the $50 Billion range, ranking him comfortably in the world’s top 5 richest men.

          What does someone with $50 Billion do when they need new digs?

          Build a billion dollar home of course! Below, thanks to  Mumbai Mirror are some of the specs:

          According to the plan, the house will rise to a height of 173.12 meters, equivalent to that of a regular 60-storeyed residential building. However, Antilia will have only 27 storeys in all, which means each floor will have a ceiling considerably higher than the current average of nearly three meters.

          Six floors for parking
          The first six floors will be reserved for parking alone, and that too for cars belonging only to Mukesh’s family. Space for a total of 168 ‘imported’ cars has been earmarked here.

          Floor for car maintenance
          Sources said the Ambanis would prefer to have all their cars serviced and maintained at an in-house service centre. This centre will be set up on the seventh floor.

          Entertainment floor
          The eighth floor will have an entertainment centre comprising a mini-theatre with a seating capacity of 50.

          Balconies with gardens
          The rooftop of the mini-theatre will serve as a garden, and immediately above that, three more balconies with terrace gardens will be independent floors.

          The ‘health’ floors
          While the ninth floor will a ‘refuge’ floor – meant to be used for rescue in emergencies – two floors above that will be set aside for ‘health.’ One of these will have facilities for athletics and a swimming pool, while the other will have a health club complete with the latest gym equipment.

          For guests
          There will be a two-storeyed glass-fronted apartment for the Ambani family’s guests above the health floors. One more refuge floor and one floor for mechanical works will be built on top of these apartments.

          Family
          The four floors at the top, that will provide a view of the Arabian Sea and a superb view of the city’s skyline, will be for Mukesh, his wife Neeta, their three children and Mukesh’s mother Kokilaben.

          Air space floor
          According to the plan, two floors above the family’s residence will be set aside as maintenance areas, and on top of that will be an “air space floor,” which will act as a control room for helicopters landing on the helipad above.

          Helipad
          The plan states that three helipads are to be built on the terrace.

          The place will require 600 full time staff to keep it running on a day to day basis!

          I know we’ve all seen Trump’s gold encrusted New York apartment, but this guy is in another league entirely. I would sure be interesting to see the public reaction in America if anyone was to build a house this opulent. But given the horrific poverty that is present in India, to build a structure like this as a personal residence does seem to be highly insensitive at best.

          I’m as much of a capitalist as anyone and Mr. Ambani can certainly do as he pleases with all that dough, but I do think an awareness of the fate of those around him should play into his actions.

          Really will having a house this spectacular give him a better life; or will the separation it creates from virtually everyone else around him make it a regretful nightmare?

            Christy Ruth Walton (birth month and day is a mystery, born 1955), age 55 or 56 yrs, is the widow of John T Walton, who was a son of Sam Walton, the founder of Wal-Mart (and Sam's Club). After John's death in June 2005, she inherited his fortune of $15.7 billion.

             

            As of 2011, she is the 4th richest person in the United States according to Forbes Magazine and the 10th richest person in the world. As of March 2011, she had an estimated net worth of US $26.5 billion, the bulk of which comes from her shares in  Wal-Mart, but also from First Solar, in which her late husband invested. She is currently the richest woman in the world.


            She currently resides in Jackson, Wyoming and has one son, Lukas.

             

            Philanthropic activity

            Facesofphilanthropycom references Condé Nast Portfolio magazine as ranking her the highest female philanthropist, according to the amount she gives as a percentage of her wealth. Between 2002 and 2006, she contributed $3.5 million from her then $16.3 billion net worth towards philanthropic efforts.

            Non-profit organizations in which Walton is actively serving include the national association of trustees and staff, corporate giving officers, and individual donors –The Philanthropy Roundtable. The San Diego Natural History Museum where she is a board member, as well as The San Diego Zoological Society and The Mingei International Museum are also institutions in which she makes donations towards. In 2006, Walton also donated her own old Victorian home to the International Community Foundation - Center for Cross-Border Philanthropy, which was built in 1896 for former National City postmaster Oliver Noyes and is of historical significance. Since her donation, she has endowed $4 million towards the edifice's preservation.

            Additionally, she supports her family's own charitable foundation, The Walton Family Charitable Support Foundation, which prioritizes education and benefits colleges such as the University of Arkansas, the College of Business Administration of the University of Arkansas, and several other colleges, community trusts, universities and foundations. In 2007, her family's foundation donated as much as $1.6 billion.

            There is a tremendous tax benefit to give money to foundations and charities. There is an added benefit, when you give money to your own foundation or charity. In other words, the tax payer gives the money to their own foundation, gets a receipt, deducts it from the tax form, then receives the original amount of money back and laughs all the way to the bank! Green laugh This person winds up with the same amount of money she/he started with BEFORE paying taxes. No income reduction. No money lost. No wealth lost. Money goes from the right hand to the left hand of the same person. This is one of the ways that BIG money is made.

                Here is another list of people that dropped out of high school or college.  They have gone on to make more money then the rest of their graduating class all together:

                 

                Alan Gerry is another billionaire high school dropout. Gerry 71 also filled his bank account by exploiting a new technology. In 1956, ten years after he dropped out of high school, Gerry built the first cable television network in upstate New York. He made his fortune in this new market, and then sold his company, Cablevision, to Time Warner for $2.6 billion four years ago. Now Gerry is chairman of a venture capital firm called Granite Associates. Granite funds entrepreneurs trying to make their money in burgeoning technology industries, just as Gerry made his fortune by getting into cable when it was still in its infancy.

                When you have a brilliant idea, nobody is going to ask to see your diploma,? Gerry says. You don't need a four-year college degree if you have burning ambition or a great plan.

                 

                Take Spud King, John R. Simplot. Simplot, was born on an Idaho farm and left home when he was 14 because he was sick of milking cows. Simplot followed that with a half century of hard work and shrewd investments, he made a killing in Micron (nyse: MU – news – people ). How important was education to his success? Hell, he says, I didn’t even get out of the eighth grade.

                 

                Tom Monaghan owner of Dominioes and former owner of the Detroit Tigers:

                I floundered during the rest of high school and graduated last in my class. They weren’t even going to graduate me, but I pleaded with a nun. She said, Well, you got good marks in the seminary, so I’ll let you graduate. But don’t ever ask me to recommend you for college.

                One day in 1960, my brother told me about a pizza shop in Ypsilanti, Mich., called Dominoes, that a friend of his was selling. My brother was interested but afraid to do it on his own, so he asked if I do it with him. I was having problems paying my way through school, so I said yes. It was $500 down, and we borrowed $900. I got a 15-minute lesson in making pizza from Dominick, and I was off. We opened up without an attorney. I didn’t even collect sales tax “didn’t know I had to. The plan was for me to work half the night and my brother to work the other half. But it didn’t work because he didn’t want to leave his full-time job as a mailman. Within about eight months he wanted out, and I bought him out by giving him the Volkswagen we used for deliveries.

                 

                Most of you probably know that Dave Thomas the founder of Wendys was a high school dropout.

                 

                Peter Jennings-High School Dropout

                 

                ~~~

                ****

                 

                Here is a couple of notable geniuses that were not billionaires. They were rich with knowledge but not cash. They were high school dropouts.

                 

                Albert Einstein

                Thomas Edison

                 

                Hong Kong self-made billionaire Li Ka-Shing, worth $18.8 billion or so, is Asia’s richest man. He is also the richest Chinese in the world, and according to Forbes, the 10th richest man in the world.

                When he was just 12 years old, Li and his family fled to Hong Kong when Japan invaded China. When he was 15, Li’s father died and he was forced to drop out of high school to support his family.

                Li got his start as a salesman selling watches at his uncle’s store, and soon proved to be a diligent worker: he worked 16 hour days, visited customers during the day and worked at the factory at night. Determined to better himself, Li even found a tutor to teach him English every night!

                When he was 21, Li opened a plastic manufacturing company and grew his business by selling high quality plastic flowers at bargain prices. When Li was 30, he accidentally got into real estate because he couldn’t renew the lease for his factory and was forced to purchase and develop a site himself.

                From there, Li diversified into electronics, telecommunications, retails, ports, and even power and electricity. Li is also noted for his philantrophy: he gave millions to various universities and disaster-relief.

                All in all, not bad for a high school drop-out.

                 

                Amancio Ortega.

                Amancio Ortega was a son of a railway worker turned fashion-mogul and Spain’s richest man. He is worth $14.8 billion.

                Ortega started out at the age of 14 as a gofer in a shirt store. At the age of 27, he started his own company to make bathrobes. Twelve years later, he opened his first store called Zara, which would become an enormously popular chain.

                Ortega kept a very low profile (so much so that when he did make a public appearance in 2000, it made headlines in Spanish press!) but we’re guessing it’s not because this billionaire dropped out of high school.

                 

                Francois Pinault.

                Francois who? You may not recognize the name, but you’ll definitely know his products: through his retail and luxury goods holding company PPR, Franasois Pinault owns (or has owned) Gucci, YSL, Converse sneakers, Samsonite luggage, the Vail ski resort in Colorado, and the auction house Christie’s.

                But donâ’t tell the luxury goods buyers that Pinault is a high school dropout – just tell them he’s worth $7 billion.

                 

                David Murdock had a tough childhood – he dropped out of high school in ninth-grade and pumped gas until he was drafted into the Army.

                Since then, however, life had worked out for him: Murdock did a leveraged buyout of Castle & amp; Cooke, which then bought Dole Food Company and assumed its name.

                So, next time you eat a Dole pinapple, remember that the guy that owns it was a high school drop out (and by buying the product, you’re making him that much richer than the $4 billion he’s currently worth)

                 

                Kirk Kerkorian.

                Self-made billionaire Kirk Kerkorian was an amateur boxer (Rifle Right Kerkorina and a pilot. At the age of 30, he got his start by buying a small air-charter service flying gamblers from Los Angeles to Las Vegas in 1947.

                Seeing opportunities in Las Vegas, Kerkorian bought land and got into the lucrative real estate / casino development. Since the 1960s, Kerkorian had bought (and sold) hot properties like the Caesars Palace, the Las Vegas Hilton, MGM Grand Hotel and Casino, and others.

                Kerkorian’s current fortune is estimated to be around $8.7 billion – not bad for someone who was a highschool dropout.

                 

                YC Wang.

                Can you technically label someone a dropout if he never started high school to begin with? Dunno, but this is too remarkable not to mention.

                Wait, there’s a billionaire here that never even set foot in high school?

                Yes. That’s YC Wang, a self-made Taiwanese billionaire who made his fortune in plastics and chemicals. The octagenarian is now the head of Taiwan’s Formosa Plastics, one of the largest plastic manufacturers in the world.

                Wang was born to a tea farmer and was forced to enter the work force with only an elementary school education.

                He did well for himself, though – Wang is now worth $5.4 billion.

                 

                Virgin’s Richard Branson is worth $2.8 billion and that’s not too shabby for a guy who didn’t even finish high school.

                Branson suffered from dyslexia and dropped out of high school at 16 years of age. What he lacked in schooling, however, he made up in curiosity and entrepreneur zeal – when he was 15, he had started two business ventures: growing Christmas trees and raising parrots!

                When he was 17, Branson opened his first charity and started his first record business. Along with Nik Powell, Branson opened a small record store in London called Virgin. It specialized in krautrock imports.

                Virgin became a veritable giant (branching out into things like airways, telecommunication and so forth) and Branson was knighted in 1999 for services to entrepreneurship.

                 

                More education doesn’t mean you’ll be more successful. It’s all about your drive. Your passion in life and sticking to it. Not necessarily playing it safe.  I’ve meet many people that have played it safe, with a good job and such and then retire broke.  Don’t play it safe.  Go for it like these people have.

                So, next time you want to call him a high school dropout, remember that it’s Sir high school dropout to you.

                  Very interesting read, Clearly quite a few of these people had childhoods where they had to stand up and be head of the household at early ages, others prove its never to late to to follow your dream. Some of the names on this list really surprised me.Thanks for posting.Sun Smiley

                    Hello Everyone,

                    Has anyone chosen a billionaire mentor as yet?

                    Give us some feed back as to how you are all doing with the billionaires!

                    Let us know if there is a specific billionaire you would like to see!

                     

                    If you look around and see a mountain of bills to be paid and consciously say to yourself "I am always broke" your subconscious mind will respond to your command even though it now believes there is nothing wrong with being rich.

                    To your continued wealth and happiness!!!

                      Li Ka-shing was born in Chaozhou, China in 1928. In 1940 his family fled to Hong Kong as the Japanese invaded China. Li Ka-shing’s first job was selling watch bands, and then became a wholesale salesman at the age of 17, and then on to a general manager at the young age of 19.

                      He founded a plastics company in Hong Kong in 1949, and made a small fortune selling plastic flowers. In 1958 his interests moved to real estate and by 1971, he had founded Cheung Kong Real Estate Company. The Cheung Kong Real Estate Company eventually acquired his current flagship company, Hutchison Whampoa Limited in 1979, and Hong Kong Electric Holdings Limited in 1985, creating a large conglomerate. Li Ka-shing has business interests spanning many industries and more than 90 countries.

                      The largest branch of his business is in container port facilities, including ports in China, Hong Kong, Panama, Rotterdam, and Bahamas. His business controls 12% of all container port capacity in the world. Li Ka-shing also has extensive investments in telecommunications in Asia-Pacific and Europe.

                      One of the most powerful figures in Asia, he was named /Asia's Most Powerful Man/ by /Asiaweek/ in 2000. A known philanthropist, Li has donated more than $450 million to educational causes and medical care such as nursing homes and day-care canters for the elderly. His donations in 1981 resulted in the founding of Shantou University, and after the Indian Ocean Earthquake disaster in 2004; he reportedly donated a total of $3 million.

                      Forbes magazine reports his net worth at $12.4 billion and the 19th richest person in the world. In spite of his wealth, Li has a reputation for leading a no-frills lifestyle, and is known to wear cheap shoes and old watches.

                        Susanne Klatten (born Susanne Hanna Ursula Quandton 28 April 1962 in Bad Homburg, Germany) is the daughter of Herbert and Johanna Quandt. As of 2009, she is the richest woman in Germany and the 35th richest person in the world.

                        After gaining a degree in business finance, Susanne Klatten worked for the advertising agency Young & Rubicam in Frankfurt from 1981 to 1983.[2] This was followed by a course in marketing and management at the University of Buckingham, and an MBA from IMD in Lausanne specialising in advertising.

                        She gained further business experience in London with Dresdner Bank, the Munich branch of management consultants McKinsey and the bank Reuschel & Co.

                        Recognising that her wealth is sometimes a problem, she often worked incognito under the name Susanne Kant. Police prevented an attempt to kidnap her in 1978.[3]

                        On her father's death she inherited his 50.1% stake in pharmaceutical and chemicals manufacturer Altana. She sits on Altana's supervisory board and helped transform it into a world-class corporation in the German DAX list of 30 top companies. In 2006 Altana AG sold its pharmaceutical activities to Nycomed for €4.5 billion, leaving only its specialty chemicals business. The €4.5 billion was distributed to shareholders as a dividend. Altana maintained its stock exchange listing and Susanne Klatten remained its majority shareholder. In 2009 she bought almost all shares she did not already own in Altana.

                        Her father also left her a 12.50% stake in BMW. She was appointed to the supervisory board of BMW with her brother Stefan Quandt in 1997.

                        German graphite maker SGL Group said on 16 March 2009 that Susanne Klatten, owns options to raise her stake in SGL from 8% to almost a quarter of the shares but no more than that.

                          Oprah Winfrey (born Orpah Gail Winfrey; January 29, 1954) is an American television host, actress, producer, and philanthropist, best known for her self-titled, multi-award winning talk show, which has become the highest-rated program of its kind in history. She has been ranked the richest African American of the 20th century, the greatest black philanthropist in American history, and was once the world's only black billionaire. She is also, according to some assessments, the most influential woman in the world.

                          Winfrey was born into poverty in rural Mississippi to a teenage single mother and later raised in an inner-city Milwaukee neighborhood. She experienced considerable hardship during her childhood, claiming to be raped at age nine and becoming pregnant at 14; her son died in infancy. Sent to live with the man she calls her father, a barber in Tennessee, Winfrey landed a job in radio while still in high school and began co-anchoring the local evening news at the age of 19. Her emotional ad-lib delivery eventually got her transferred to the daytime talk show arena, and after boosting a third-rated local Chicago talk show to first place she launched her own production company and became internationally syndicated.

                          Credited with creating a more intimate confessional form of media communication, she is thought to have popularized and revolutionized the tabloid talk show genre pioneered by Phil Donahue, which a Yale study claims broke 20th century taboos and allowed LGBT people to enter the mainstream. By the mid 1990s, she had reinvented her show with a focus on literature, self-improvement, and spirituality. Though criticized for unleashing confession culture and promoting controversial self-help aids, she is often praised for overcoming adversity to become a benefactor to others. From 2006 to 2008, her support of Barack Obama, by one estimate, delivered over a million votes in the close 2008 Democratic primary race.

                          Winfrey was originally named "Orpah" after the Biblical character in the Book of Ruth, but her family and friends "didn't know how to pronounce it", and called her "Oprah" instead.

                          Winfrey was born in Kosciusko, Mississippi to an unmarried teenage mother. She later said that her conception was due to a single sexual encounter and the couple broke up not long after. Her mother, Vernita Lee (born c. 1935) was a housemaid. Winfrey had believed that her biological father was Vernon Winfrey (born 1933), a coal miner turned barber turned city councilman who had been in the Armed Forces when she was born. Decades later, Mississippi farmer and World War II veteran Noah Robinson Sr. (born c. 1925) claimed to be her biological father.

                          A genetic test in 2006 determined that her maternal line originated among the Kpelle ethnic group, in the area that today is Liberia. Her genetic make up was determined to be 89 percent Sub-Saharan African, 8% Native American, and 3% East Asian; however, the East Asian markers may, due to the imprecisions of genetic testing, actually be Native American ones.

                          After her birth, Winfrey's mother traveled north and Winfrey spent her first six years living in rural poverty with her grandmother, Hattie Mae Lee (April 15, 1900 - February 27, 1963), who was so poor that Winfrey often wore dresses made of potato sacks, for which the local children made fun of her. Her grandmother taught her to read before the age of three and took her to the local church, where she was nicknamed "The Preacher" for her ability to recite Bible verses. When Winfrey was a child, her grandmother would hit her with a switch when she didn't do chores or if she misbehaved in any way.

                          At age six, Winfrey moved to an inner-city neighborhood in Milwaukee, Wisconsin with her mother, who was less supportive and encouraging than her grandmother had been, due in large part to the long hours Vernita Lee worked as a maid. Around the time Winfrey moved in, Lee had given birth to another daughter, Winfrey's younger half-sister, Patricia who later (on February 2003, at age 43) died of causes related to cocaine addiction. By 1962, Lee was having difficulty raising both daughters so Winfrey was temporarily sent to live with Vernon in Nashville, Tennessee. While Winfrey was in Nashville, Lee gave birth to a third daughter. Lee gave this daughter, later also named Patricia, up for adoption in the hope of easing the financial straits that had led to Lee's being on Welfare. Winfrey did not learn she had a second half-sister until 2010 By the time Winfrey moved back in with Lee, Lee had also given birth to a boy named Jeffrey, Winfrey's half-brother, who died of AIDS-related causes in 1989.

                          Winfrey has stated she was molested by her cousin, her uncle, and a family friend, starting when she was nine years old, something she first claimed to her viewers on a 1986 episode of her TV show, when sexual abuse was being discussed. When Winfrey discussed the alleged abuse with family members at age 24, they refused to accept what she said Winfrey once commented that she had chosen not to be a mother because she had not been mothered well.

                          At 13, after suffering years of abuse, Winfrey ran away from home. When she was 14, she became pregnant, her son dying shortly after birth. She later said she felt betrayed by the family member who had sold the story to the National Enquirer in 1990. She began high school at Lincoln High School; but after early success in the Upward Bound program was transferred to the affluent suburban Nicolet High School, where she says her poverty was constantly rubbed in her face as she rode the bus to school with fellow African-Americans, some of whom were servants of her classmates' families. She began to steal money from her mother in an effort to keep up with her free-spending peers, to lie to and argue with her mother, and to go out with older boys.

                          Her frustrated mother once again sent her to live with Vernon in Nashville, Tennessee though this time she did not take her back. Vernon was strict but encouraging, and made her education a priority. Winfrey became an honors student, was voted Most Popular Girl, and joined her high school speech team at East Nashville High School, placing second in the nation in dramatic interpretation. She won an oratory contest, which secured her a full scholarship to Tennessee State University, a historically black institution, where she studied communication. Her first job as a teenager was working at a local grocery store. At age 17, Winfrey won the Miss Black Tennessee beauty pageant. She also attracted the attention of the local black radio station, WVOL, which hired her to do the news part-time. She worked there during her senior year of high school, and again while in her first two years of college.

                          Winfrey's career choice in media would not have surprised her grandmother, who once said that ever since Winfrey could talk, she was on stage. As a child she played games interviewing her corncob doll and the crows on the fence of her family's property. Winfrey later acknowledged her grandmother's influence, saying it was Hattie Mae who had encouraged her to speak in public and "gave me a positive sense of myself". Working in local media, she was both the youngest news anchor and the first black female news anchor at Nashville's WLAC-TV. She moved to Baltimore's WJZ-TV in 1976 to co-anchor the six o'clock news. She was then recruited to join Richard Sher as co-host of WJZ's local talk show People Are Talking, which premiered on August 14, 1978. She also hosted the local version of Dialing for Dollars there as well.
