There is something magical about the Awesome Ambitions Kick-off event every year.
2018 marks 22 years Awesome Ambitions has been educating, empowering and inspiring Awesome Ambitions girls to set and achieve positive goals for their lives. The September 8, 2018 event was filled with smiles and great expectations from dozens of new girls who joined Awesome Ambitions and the returning Awesome Ambitions girls. We enjoyed our traditional Lip-Sync Dance Contest. Girls divided into teams and the volunteers had a separate team. They both dressed up in silly props and performed to prearranged songs. More than 20 volunteers surrounded the girls and shared why they are donating their time and their wishes for the girls. Awesome Ambitions Founder and President, Cynthia Newsome talked with the girls about understanding they have a destiny and purpose and whatever they do in life, they should make a difference. Each girl received a journal to chronicle her thoughts and meaningful memories of the upcoming Awesome Ambitions Sessions.
After check-in, during parent orientation, Awesome girls and their parents learned about the exciting new addition to the Awesome ambitions program—a trip out of state. This year’s trip will be to Washington, D.C. Awesome girls and volunteers will leave on Thursday, June 6, 2019 and return to KCI on Sunday, June 9, 2019. During the trip Awesome girls will enjoy a city-wide tour, visit Howard University, the Holocaust Museum, and be a experience a visit to Congress as a guest of Congressman
Emanuel Cleaver. We will also have a dress-up night with a trip to the symphony or theater. The cost of the trip is $600. Awesome Ambitions girls with perfect attendance will receive a $100 discount. The last day to pay is February 2, 2019. Any questions can be submitted online or by calling Cynthia Newsome, 816-835-1091.
