Meet Cassandra

Cassandra joined the TWB family for our Summer 2018 program. She quickly opened up to the group, allowing herself to be seen and vulnerable, which led to the other women in her class feeling comfortable enough to do the same. Cassandra is an entrepreneur, and she started a Mom’s Group, where she can live her passion of empowering mothers to be the best versions of themselves they can be. Read more about Cassandra’s story below.

What circumstances brought you to where you were before you joined Together We Bake?

Cassandra: Not being honest about my feelings towards others, only thinking of myself, putting a wall up,  not allowing myself to be loved.

What inspired you to apply to Together We Bake?

Cassandra: Sitting in on a meeting hearing how they help women get their power back; a second chance.

How has Together We Bake changed your perspective on life?

Cassandra: Yes, it has. It’s given me the drive I used to have to go back to putting Cassandra first. Also hearing the stories of the other women really inspired me. I thought I had problems; mine were small compared to what these women have been through.

Has someone at Together We Bake (a fellow participant, a volunteer, an instructor, etc) had a particular influence on you?

Cassandra: Yes, all of the women, but Kristian has 6 babies and still manages to make it everyday and wants better and went for it, making her babies her number one priority.
