Oprah's daughter-girl, Thando Dlomo, shared a picture of herself with friends soaking up the sun in their happy poses. The budding journalist has been doing a lot to make the most of the life-changing opportunity she got from mom, Oprah Winfrey, a few years back.
Dlomo's picture is a reflection of her personality; the South-African native is hardly ever without a smile. She and her friends are standing against a backdrop of the ocean and flashing wide grins. Dlomo is in her signature low-cut hair, wearing a striped black and white jumpsuit with belt detail. She accessorizes with a necklace, black sling purse, stud earrings that are almost invisible, and tinted aviator sunglasses.
The budding journalist and alumnae of Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls (OWLAG), is known for her colorful yet classy sense of style. Just two months ago, she was a pleasant vision in white at the 2018 BET Awards. But Dlomo is not just a stylish millennial. The young woman displays a determined resolve to keep improving herself and ever since she got the opportunity to attend OWLAG, Dlomo has been unstoppable
After graduating college from Johnson C. Smith University in 2016, she went on to acquire a Masters in Communication Journalism from the University of Southern California. Since then, she has been making a name for herself in Journalism, interviewing a couple of celebrities like Ava DuVernay. She also started a Youtube channel, “Thando Talks,” where she invites subscribers to join her in "laughter, spirituality, conversation, love, and growth."
Dlomo was raised in Johannesburg by her domestic worker grandmother after she lost both parents to AIDS. Getting accepted into Winfrey's education initiative was almost unbelievable for the young Dlomo whose grandma did not have enough resources to send to high school. She expressed her gratitude in an emotional delivery at her college graduation, which was attended by her entertainment mogul "mom":
“This is a huge success for young Zulu girls who grew up in townships raised by grandmothers, single mothers. I’m an AIDS orphan, and it's just a tremendous achievement to stand before you all today. …I'm excited to graduate today. It's a fabulous experience. To have Mom Oprah here to be here with us and support us is beyond us, really.”
Dlomo was one of the 72 girls that commenced the first batch of OWLAG in 2007.
