Q&A with Cassidy

Tell us something about yourself that nobody knows.
Well if I told you it wouldn’t be something that nobody knows anymore, would it? Haha! Actually no! I hate reading that answer in interviews. So, I prefer mangos when they are a little unripe and sour.

What tips can you share that have helped to shape your career?
1. Be true to yourself.
2. Stop chasing perfection (because you’ll actually find your content will end up being less relatable).
3. Don’t compare yourself to other creators or to their content (they could have teams and industry professionals helping them… They may also have been doing this a lot longer than you)

Best performance?
Straight out of high school, I had the opportunity to be cast as one of the main characters on an American TV series, called Clan Of The Cave Bear, where I got to meet the most incredible people and make life long connections. The information will be online, but if you’re asking where you can see it, it unfortunately never made it past the pilot episode.

Advice you would give to your 18 year old self in one sentence?
Stop caring what your friends will think.

Best advice you were given when you started out.
There is always going to be someone better than you, someone prettier than you, someone with more talent. It’s inevitable. So don’t ever let that fact be the reason why you’re scared. Let it be the reason why you work harder and believe in YOURSELF more.

With FAME Week Africa being hosted in the Mother City, what do you love about Cape Town?
What I absolutely love about my city, Cape Town, is how easy it is to do something you love without having to drive for hours. If you want to go to the beach, hike a mountain, go to a cute coffee shop or even hit up a place for lunch it’s all at your fingertips.
