Climbing rocks without falling, climbing trees for the perfect shot, and climbing to new heights figuratively too– that’s a little bit of what Cassie has done with us this year! As an Alexander High School spokesmodel, Cassie was part of multiple photo and video shoots with us, modeling in locations ranging from glowing fields to dilapidated houses and woods filled with “clunky” cars. Our favorite locations with her? Hands down, the rocks– both in Georgia and in San Diego on our trip with her as our National Seniors Ignite Models winner (stay tuned for more from California)! Lounging back on an enormous rock pile just after sunset in Douglasville, GA, Cassie showed her incredible model talent as she delivered that comfortable-yet-fierce pose and expression. She found herself modeling on rocks again in San Diego- this time on the edge of a cliff overlooking the ocean . . . in the wind . . . in heels . . . managing to deliver that calm yet full-of-life expression again despite the near-terrifying view of the drop from cliff to sea level. That’s one of the things we love about Cassie: when faced with adversity, a challenge, or anything that requires hard work and strength of character, Cassie responds with that calm yet determined, positive mindset. She has drive, coupled with humility, faith, and a genuine heart. Simply put, she’s “rock steady.” 🙂
Working with Cassie this year has been the most fun and incredible experience we could have imagined! From photographing her lavender-skinny-jeans-and-feminine-white-tank ensemble in the field to shooting her bright, almost Army-green dress with a matching trunk at a rundown house, we’ve enjoyed every moment (and outfit)! The fashions really were awesome, including a colorful high-low skirt, a simple white button-down, denim, stripes- and our favorite- yellow skinny jeans with a navy-and-white striped tank top, worn on the rocks! Thanks, Cassie, for being such a great spokesmodel and for being a “rock” for so many people as you have continually leaned on THE Rock!

Fav song or quote this year:
SO MANY… but would have to say John 16:33: “In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”
Plans for next year:
I am attending the University of West Georgia in the fall where I will be majoring in Early Childhood Education.
Advice for the class of 2014:
Keep God first in all that you do. And remember that His plan is far better than our own could ever be!!
Anything your classmates would be surprised to learn about you:
I hope to continue with modeling in some sort of way. I am going to see agencies in Atlanta this summer and possibly will be taking a trip to Los Angeles and go from there!!
How do you want to help change the world?
I plan on going on many mission trips throughout my life to spread the Word of Jesus to those who have never heard! I am starting this goal off this summer, in Puerto Rico.
