Luvvie Ajayi Meets Oprah Winfrey Five Years After Tweeting Her Desire To Meet Her



Dreams, however simple, come true!

Five years ago, Nigerian, US-based author, Luvvie Ajayi tweeted her desire to meet Oprah Winfrey only when the media mogul knows her name.

Even though she was in the same room together with Oprah for at least seven times in the past years, Luvvie didn’t introduce herself.

Interestingly this year, Oprah picked Luvvie as one of the people on the Supersoul 100 list, recognized for “elevating humanity”. She also got to interview Oprah two months after making the list.

The excited author, on her Instagram page shared the story to encourage people that dreams actually come true.

She said,

2016Luvlights – For a long time, I’ve said that I will meet @Oprah Winfrey when she already knows my name, so even though we’ve been in the same room together at least 7 times over the years, I never tried to introduce myself.

Well, this year, it happened. Oprah handpicked 100 people who “elevate humanity” as part of her first #Supersoul100 list and I was one of them.  She did a brunch for us in LA in April and I met her there. It was glorious. And then in June, her team had me back to interview her for OWN on the @OWNTV lot. *holy ghost faint* my locs were gone by then so Oprah grabbed my head during the interview and afterwards!
Dreams come true and I’ve boldly spoken some of mine just to see them unfold right before my eyes. This has been a year of my dreams becoming reality and I’m beyond grateful. God is good. HEY OPRAH, girl! That actually happened. *swoons*  #LOOKATGAWD#WontHeDoIt
