    her life stories gave strong impressions on many people.

    The famous person I take a lot of interest in is Oprah Winfrey.When I was a schooler, I used to watch her TV talk show. I enjoyed it. Her talk show has become very successful in the world because she communicates with many people, forming a social consensus. Also she is one of the most influential women in the United States.Moreover, her life stories gave strong impressions on many people.

    Moreover, she gave the impression of a lifetime for many people.*Moreover, her life stories gave strong impressions on many people.

    The original writer tried to say "her life gave many people great impressions", but I felt it a little bit unnatural. If it's not natural, this might be.
