Denni, a single mom of three children, was working three jobs to give her children the education they needed to succeed. With her hard-earned paychecks, she was able to put all three of her children through college, but she incurred $78,000 in student loans along the way.
Denni's son, Johnathan, wrote to Oprah to tell her about his hardworking mom. Denni's dream was to one day go to Italy, so Oprah surprised Denni and her children with a luxury dream vacation to Italy!
Still, there was a big burden hanging over Denni's head. At the rate she was working, she'd "be a young 93" by the time she paid off her children's student loans. "Well, it will not take you that long," Oprah said. "Because we're going to pay off all those loans!"
Before that day, Denni said she thought her life was over. "No, no," Oprah said. "Your life isn't over. It's just beginning."
