Logan Forster, a sophomore at Rumson-Fair Haven Regional High School, has been named a Miss CEO Ambassador bringing the California-based organization to Monmouth County with an open call for girls ages thirteen to eighteen to join. Miss CEO offers world-class leadership education, mentorship, and career exploration opportunities to empower young women and inspire them to become great leaders. Since its founding in 2011, Miss CEO has conducted workshops and trained thousands of children, young women, and professionals all over the world.
“To be a Miss CEO ambassador is to be a leader, mentor, and role model for all girls,” Forster says. “Miss CEO is all about empowering girls and providing them with the right tools to succeed in life, no matter what career path they choose. As an ambassador, I try to help girls discover new career opportunities. In my club I hope to provide the girls with an outlet to explore their different interests and feel excited for their futures.”
Forster has lived in Rumson for almost eleven years and participates in the RFH Habitat for Humanity Club, RFH Paws n Claws Club, RFH Euro Challenge Club, RFH Cheer Team, and the Dance Mixx Competition Team. A lover of dance, she has won first place in several competitions, including solos, and is going on her tenth year of dance training.
The Club will not require meetings, but rather offer participation events, and most communication will be done via email. Forster plans to take members to visit a female lawyer from the Giordanno and Ciesla Law Firm, a female doctor/nurse from Riverview Medical Center, a female from Fortinet (an internet security business), and more as girls join and express what careers they would like to explore. There is no cost to join the club, but some excursions may require money for travel and food.
“With the rise of many new career paths, there are more options to the question, ‘what do you want to be when you grow up?’ Some girls feel intimidated by these jobs, or feel like they will be judged if they choose to be an astrophysicist instead of something conventional,” Forster says. “I think it is very important to give everyone a chance to be who they truly want to be, and by starting this club I can help girls explore their interests and passions. Interests they might have never known they even had.”
