Starfish Scholar Program: Transforming Lives — One Girl at a Time

In 2017, Soledad O'Brien and her foundation, the Starfish Scholar Program, continues its philanthropic venture.

Focusing on disadvantaged young women and with a goal of helping a group of them complete their college education and begin careers, the foundation’s motto is “Transforming Lives — One Girl at a Time.”

O'Brien's day might well start at 5:30 a.m. and into a hair and make-up chair before appearing on television.

The day can include foundation business, conducting interviews, being interviewed and working on documentaries for her Starfish Media group.

Plus, Soledad is a wife and mother of four. Her evening might be devoted to family, public events, or dinner with her young scholars at her New York apartment.

“Our Scholars are young,” says O’Brien. “They haven’t been through the experience where the thing that was bad actually turned out to be a blessing, and the thing that was great turned out to be not so great. That’s what time gives us.”
