Architects of Change: Alina Morse
The 8th Architects of Change (AOC) will feature child entrepreneur, Alina Morse. Attendees will have the opportunity to engage in an interactive, facilitated conversation with Alina, who is the youngest person to ever grace the cover of Entrepreneur Magazine. Alina Morse is a 14-year-old Michigan ninth-grader who runs a multi-million dollar all-natural candy company that cleans your teeth, with Southern California being the first market where her products were sold. Her company is cause-based and is defining the health candy space that is providing healthier options for consumers and growth for retailers. In 2019, SUCCESS Magazine included her on their 30 under 30 list, while InStyle Magazine included her in the “Meet the Women Who Are Changing the World,” feature, which also included former First Lady Michelle Obama, who hosted Alina at the White House twice to hand out candy at the annual Easter Egg Roll. Architects of Change Live is a conversation series with a mission.
OLP is the first school to partner with Maria Shriver to bring the Architects of Change premise to the scholastic level. It celebrates and shares stories of inspiration from individuals who challenge what is, imagine what can be, and who moves humanity forward. The goal is to inspire those listening to do the same in their own communities. The premise of 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." The special event is free and open to the public, although registration is required.
