Hollywood "Cinderella": 10 celebrities who grew up in poverty
Oprah is a good example of how you can succeed despite everything. Her family lived in terrible poverty. The girl's mother worked as a housemaid, and her father was a mine worker. Because of financial problems in the family, the girl often lived with her relatives and from the very childhood experienced violence. The grandmother of Oprah often switched her, and when she was 9 years her cousin raped her. Unfortunately, it was not a one-time case of sexual abuse and harassment by the family members.
