Talk show queen Oprah Winfrey thrilled students from her academy in South Africa by flying them to the US and introducing them to President Barack Obama.

The media mogul launched the Leadership Academy for Girls near Johannesburg eight years ago to improve education for local youngsters and she proved the project is still close to her heart by jetting a group of 63 students to the States to visit leading universities including Harvard and Stanford, reports

Winfrey even used her influence to arrange a visit to the White House to meet the president before throwing a party for the group at her estate in Santa Barbara, California.
