BYOU “Be Your Own You” has just signed Cassandra Perkins as an official spokes model to empower and educate girls on the dangers of bullying. This 14-year-old actress, Internet TV talk show host, co-author, and stunt girl has been a victim of bullying herself, and her passion is to bring awareness to young girls of this harmful epidemic and help them achieve stronger self-esteem for a better quality of life. She currently is starring in the upcoming not-yet-released anti-bullying movie, Bully Girls, and is a Certified Internet Child Safety Advocate.
See Cassandra on stage along with BYOU CEO Debra Gano on Saturday, November 12, from 1-3 PM , as they deliver a powerful self-esteem/anti-bullying program at the Evolve Expo at theDenver Merchandise Mart (I-25 & 58th St). Tickets are $5 for Kids/$10 Adults and can be purchased at the door.
Cassandra began her acting career on the theatrical stage when she was 5, and by the age of 10, had blossomed into a fine young actor with several film credits to her name, as well as a Heartland Regional Emmy nomination.
BYOU Magazine Spokesmodel
Cassandra is a member of the Asgard Stunt team, where she performs film-related fight choreography, weapon technique, and high/low falls. She works closely with several non-profit organizations that coordinate community youth outreach, suicide prevention, and cyber safety awareness, and has co-authored a book titled “Lift As You Climb,” a collection of warm-hearted and insightful stories, inspirational poems, and positive thoughts.
Cassandra feels strongly about making a global difference in the world and has her own Internet TV talk show called ‘Global Voices Reaching Out’ with an impressive list of guests of best-selling authors, politicians, artists, and many others who are powerful influences today. Her goal is to inspire, lift, motivate, and provide tools for change and growth to make a positive impact that will empower others to live a purpose-driven life.
“We are thrilled to have Cassandra on the team,” says Gano, a national speaker on girls’ self-esteem herself. “She’s a great positive role and has accomplished so much already at such a young age. She really is an inspiration to girls to go out into the world to make a positive difference.”
