I'm Cynthia Newsome, KSHB 41 Community Relationships Director and Founder and President of Awesome Ambitions, a college and career readiness program for 8th through 12 grade girls in Kansas City area. Awesome Ambitions was founded in 1997. Through monthly seminars, special events and field-trips we expose our girls to possible careers to help them discover what they want to do with their lives. Our organization offers our Awesome Ambitions girls the skills and insights they need to set and achieve positive goals for their health education and future careers. We want to give our girls the personal and professional support they need to focus on completing high school, attending college or technical schools and graduating from those schools. We offer exposure to STEM careers and possible careers in business, health and education. Our girls practice leadership skills as they learn how to start their own business.
