Well I’m Cassandra and I’m a first year student in University. I like to sing and write creative pieces mainly poetry, it makes me happy. I’m in a family of six and my little sister means the world to me, I honestly don’t know what I would do without her. I have a pretty normal life, I go on vacation once or twice a year, mainly cruises I love them so much. I’m different then my family though, I guess I can say I’m less materialistic and I enjoy life differently than they do but I love them.
What inspires you everyday
I think my love for beauty, nature and the immaterial aspects of my life inspire me everyday. Going on vacation really inspires me and the experiences i have on these islands with people of different backgrounds and cultures really opens my eyes. They have very little but they’re happy and don’t care about the materialistic aspect of their lives.
What is something you would change about people in the world
Pretty much their mind set, I feel like the older generation has a lot to do with the reason behind why their children are racist, homophobic and sexist. My parents were brought up very traditional, they had to marry within the same culture, religion, etc. and I know a lot of families who are like that as well. I think I would change peoples mind sets and hope for them to be more open minded.
What is your view on society today
I feel as if we’re almost taking a step back as a society and history is repeating itself in a way. I think society is taking a few steps forward but then something happens and it’s like no progress was being made. It’s like i said before, the world is full of many closed minded corrupt people it’s taking a bad toll on our society. There are many people who make the world a better place but the bad adds onto all of it and it destroys the good.
What is something you’ve struggled with
Finding who I am as a person, I hate change and I find that when I notice a change happening in my life I feel uncomfortable and I don’t know what to do. I think that’s something I’ve struggled with throughout my life.
What is a positive message you would give others
Mainly to try to be positive and be yourself. Being someone you’re not will only make you wish you were that person rather than be your true self. We’re made with our personalities and traits for a reason, people should be able to embrace their uniqueness without being scared of what other think.
Last question what is a goal you would like to achieve in the future
Happiness, I hope to feel complete happiness within myself and be able to make others happy. I want to be able to write and bring my family joy and unlimited love, but the goal is to achieve utter happiness within myself.
