Behind the Seams Q&A with Cassandra Bankson
March 20, 2013
Today I am excited to bring you Cassandra Bankson. I met Cassandra after casting her for my Forever Young NYFW show last September via ExploreModeling.com. If you have been following my journey here or just stopping by since then, Cassandra has also walked in this past Invasion Collections NYFW for Boy Meets Girl® seen here! Right after Septembers NYFW, Cassandra and I created a campaign together called #LIVEOUTLOUD. You can see how it all formed here. It is truly amazing to see the growth of a project we created within 24 hours of meeting each other. Cassandra is an incredible spirit, hard-worker and a true UPSTANDER. Thank you Cassandra for being amazing to work with from modeling in Boy Meets Girl® shows to bring awareness to stand up to bullying with me. Learn more about Cassandra below.
Bystanders are silent. Upstanders LIVE OUT LOUD.
The "Live Out Loud" Campaign Presented by Stacy Igel of Boy Meets Girl® and Cassandra Bankson supports the mission of the BullyBust Organization; to empower students and adults with the tools they need to reduce bullying, become upstanders and promote upstander behavior to others.
Our ongoing mission, with the support of the BullyBust Organization and the National School Climate Center, is to appoint and honor those who have stood up to bullying around the world. Our goal for 2013 is to continue to appoint Upstanders from each of the 50 United States and several International countries; by 2014 we plan to expand globally. Using social media and signature Boy Meets Girl® apparel, we seek to further the message that courage is a trend that never goes out of style.
