The Academy of Our Lady of Peace (OLP) has partnered with Shriver Media to host the second Architects of Change at School Live conversation on March 15. The conversation series, which is open to the public, will feature the inspiring story and faith journey of U.S. Navy flight surgeon, dermatologist, speaker, author, and mother of five Cyndi Peterson, MD, who recently published Waiting for a Miracle: One Mother’s Journey to Unshakable Faith.

All are invited to join with OLP students as they conduct their next conversation series to learn more about Dr. Cyndi Peterson and her story of hope in God through the challenges of life. “We are honored to be the first school to partner with Maria Shriver and her team for the launch of Architects of Change at School and so excited to welcome Dr. Peterson to share her story,” said Dr. Lauren Lek, OLP Head of School. “These are the rich conversations about life and humanity that result in the powerful transformation of young women committed to making a difference in our world. I am privileged to see how our young women at OLP are architects of change in their lives and communities each and every day.”

Maria Shriver describes an Architect of Change as “someone who challenges what is, imagines what can be, and moves humanity forward.” The premise in the Live series is to bring together a conversation in an intimate setting because when people come together to listen and share, “minds open, hearts move, and change happens.”

With Maria’s support, the school produced the first ever Architects of Change at School event in November 2016, featuring Dr. Lauren Lek and Assistant Head of School Jessica Hooper. Previous Architects of Change guests include: Shonda Rimes, TV producer and writer (Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal); Patrick Kennedy (former Congressman from Rhode Island); Cindy Crawford (model and businesswoman), and Terry Crews (actor and former NFL player).
