Oprah Winfrey has no regrets about launching schoolDecember 13th, 2007 - 4:40 pm ICT by admin
Washington , Dec 13 (ANI): Chat show queen Oprah Winfrey has insisted that she has “no regrets” about launching her all-girl academy in South Africa which made headlines for a child abuse scandal.
Oprah, heart-broken over allegations of physical and sexual abuse at her Leadership Academy for Girls, claimed that she is quite optimistic about her earlier decisions and also the future regarding her much-loved Henley-On-Kip school.
“From the very first half hour, after I was able to pull myself together, I knew that this too shall pass. (I told myself) ‘Just work on it, focus on the girls, focus on the girls, focus on the girls.’ And the girls are now fine, Contactmusic quoted Oprah, as saying.
She added: “I think that all crisis is there to teach you about your life. You have to be far more careful in choosing people to stand in the gap for you. You have to stay on it.
“The school is going to be better because that happened. We’re going to come back and have best year ever!”
Oprah, who co-founded the Academy in 2006, issued a sincere apology earlier this year, to the students who suffered because of the school officials.
Since then, a dorm matron has been suspended and arrested. (ANI)
