The Academy of Our Lady of Peace (OLP), the oldest high school in San Diego and the only all girls’ school in the county, is hosting world-renowned surfer and shark attack survivor Bethany Hamilton for a day of empowering events on-campus on Tuesday, Oct. 10. Attendees will have the opportunity to meet and interact with Bethany while being inspired by her message of Courage Over Fear, at this exclusive Southern California event.

“This partnership with Bethany supports our mission to empower young women,” says Dr. Lauren Lek, Head of School. “She inspires, fosters community, and serves as an excellent role model of what it means to be a ‘woman of faith, courage, heart, and excellence.’ We are excited and enthusiastic to host this amazing ‘Unstoppable’ woman and ignite passion for others through her incredible example.”  

The special event is open to the public and will consist of four exciting mini-sessions over the course of the day and evening with live Q&A sessions, photo opportunities, and a free on-campus celebration.
