NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) - A Nacogdoches woman with a background in corporate communication and a bubbly personality to go with it is hoping Oprah will fulfill a lifelong dream.

Oprah recently launched a search for the next star to host their own show on Oprah's new television network. Nikki Thompson Frazier is submitting her talents and ideas in the online and personal audition nationwide search. The goal-oriented woman is extremely serious about winning the opportunity to have her own  show, a goal she set for herself five years ago.

"This is what I was born to do. I created a vision statement a while ago and it said I wanted to touch the lives of women and children everywhere. Like touch billions of people and to use my talents and my resources to help those people. So this is it. Like this show will allow me to do that, so it's not just like, 'Oh , it would be kinda fun to put my video.' No! This is like I am committed to doing this and I know I'm going to win," said Thompson Frazier.

Thompson Frazier pitched her ideas to Oprah's search team in Dallas. She's confident her next stop will be Los Angeles as a finalist.
