The charity said Friday’s episode of the program featured an hour titled “Oprah’s All-Time Favorite Guest Revealed!” which updated viewers on the lives of some of the program’s most memorable guests.
“During the show, Oprah also revealed that her favorite guest of all-time is Tererai Trent, a woman from the village of Zvipani in Zimbabwe,” the charity said in a news release.
“Tererai touched the lives of millions when she first appeared on the program in 2009, sharing her passion for an education, and a lifelong dream to go to school.”
