#Scandal creator Shonda Rhimes was named one of Time Magazine’s 100 Most Influential people of 2013! #GladiatorsROAR 

Oprah Winfrey shared her insightful thoughts on the talented Shonda Rhimes…

Shonda Rhimes
Storyteller, 43

I grew up at a time when it was an anomaly to see people who looked like me on TV.

Shonda Rhimes, creator of the must-see TV thrillerScandal, validates our story — the human story of faults and fears, loneliness and loss, triumphs and often short-lived joys. She gets us — all of us!

Shonda is a storyteller for our times. Courageous in her approach to the work, she’s never played by other people’s rules. Eight years ago, she introduced us toGrey’s Anatomywith an African-American chief of surgery and an Asian character with leading plotlines. Gay, straight, single, divorced, lost, searching — everybody gets a seat at Shonda’s table.

She creates an assemblage of worldly foibles and aspirations. She understands that every dream is valuable and every identity deserves inspection through the looking glass of television.

“She knows the power of reflection and wields that power with grace and generosity,”Scandalstar Kerry Washington told me. “Shonda allows for more people than ever before to see themselves and feel as though the world sees them too.”

Winfrey is the chairwoman and CEO of the Oprah Winfrey Network

Well deserved honor!
