Cynthia Davis visited Assumption College on Monday, March 31 to discuss her Canvas Peace Project in hopes of educating students on her story and how we, too, can make changes in our lives no matter how big or small they may be. Davis was introduced by Dr. Dona Kercher, chairperson of the Women’s Studies Department, who sponsored the event.
It all started with a blue notecard. Before Davis began, she asked us to write down something that we loved and cared about. It could be absolutely anything, and she said we would revisit it later. Davis discussed with us an acronym that she came up with called “EIPA” which stands for experience, exposure, impact, inspire, interest, passion and action to illustrate how when something affects you, it can result in you making real changes and getting others to change.
