Last weekend, my mom and I received free tickets to Oprah’s 2020 Vision Tour at The Forum!! Having grown up watching The Oprah Winfrey Show after school, I was absolutely star struck when she walked out, and so were the other 13,000 people in the stadium! I knew nothing about the event going in, so I thought it was just going to be a simple interview. Boy was I wrong. The event lasted over six hours, starting at 9am and ending just before 4pm.
While there were music and meditation sessions scattered throughout the event, Oprah was either speaking about her life onstage or walking us through her workbook for a majority of time. Because of her minority stake in Weight Watchers, she also promoted healthy eating and activity for those who were pursuing wellness and well-being.
We were also able to see Jennifer Lopez, the special guest for the Los Angeles stop! She talked a lot about turning 50 and feeling the most accomplished she’s ever felt. After her Hustlers and Super Bowl performances, I think most of America can agree that she’s only going to become more relevant and successful from here.
All in all, this was a really fun event to go to with my mom on a random Saturday. I’m so lucky to have these experiences while still in graduate school!
