She graced the modeling scene and worked for designers such as Sonia Rykiel while living and studying in France. In 1999, Cassandra also spent some time at London’s Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts (RADA) taking courses in Classical and Shakespearean acting.

“Cassandra is what most should aspire to be, someone that not only wanted to be a dreamer but wanted to live her dreams while doing good in the world, her off screen efforts is what makes her an amazing person, I am honored to know her and look forward to seeing this shinning start illuminate brighter than ever before.” stated UCW Radio Show Host Louis Velazquez
