Oprah asked Amy to talk about the things she's learned as a result of living through her very personal and difficult ordeal.

"I knew nothing then," says Amy. "What didn't I learn? I learned I should have gone to school and focused on studying instead of men. Obviously, [laughing] it's not nice to shoot people. I'm more self-reflective. I learned to be more compassionate."

Oprah feels there's a larger lesson in Amy's story: "The most important gift any parent can give their children, especially their daughters, is a sense of self-esteem. What happened to [Amy] doesn't happen to girls who have a sense of self-worth."
