Join AMP’s Impact Committee for a night of inspiration and conversation with this year’s Atwater Lecture Speaker Laurie Hernandez on March 24th at 7pm! 

Laurie Hernandez is an Olympic Gold and Silver Medalist who is an advocate for positive body image. Since bringing home the Gold and Silver medals at the 2016 Rio Olympic Games, Laurie has gone on to win the coveted Mirror ball trophy on Dancing with the Stars Season 23 and wrote her first book titled I Got This: To Gold and Beyond published in 2017, hitting the New York Times Best Sellers list. In 2018, she released a children’s picture book She’s Got This with Harper Collins Children's Books, also a NYT Best Seller, while serving as a Literacy Champion to promote readership as a path to leadership; and Mattel created a Laurie Hernandez “Shero” Barbie to honor her.

She is a second generation American, as her grandparents are from Puerto Rico, making her the first U.S. born Latina to make the U.S. team since 1984. Laurie is currently the Gymnastics analyst for Peacock and the Olympic Channel for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.
