Meet Cassandra!

All About Cassandra

Cassandra is a kind, outgoing, friendly individual. She always offers to help out wherever she can and is friendly to everyone she meets. In her free time, Cassandra enjoys dancing, painting, cooking, and playing the piano. She loves cooking mac & cheese and being in the kitchen working on her culinary skills. At Mychal’s, Cassandra has tons of fun doing different activities with her friends including Just Dance and art projects.

Blossoming Self-Confidence

In 2019, Cassandra  joined our After School Program and has learned so much over the years. She feels like she has developed more mental and physical awareness of the things that she’s interested in and comfortable doing. Cassandra also said, “I’m now more accepting of myself and more confident in my capabilities.” Since we have started vocational training within the After School Program, Cassandra has had the opportunity to work on her baking & cooking skills in the Bakery and has received Print Shop experience cleaning the embroidery machines & working on DTG printing. She loved having the chance to explore both social enterprises! Juli, the After School Supervisor, said “Cassandra is always offering staff help, making new students feel welcomes, and has really grown into a leader. I’m proud that she has recently been exploring her creativity more by participating in the Art Show & Musicals.”

A Bright Future

In June, Cassandra will be graduating from high school and is extremely excited to start the next chapter of her life by going to college at the LA Trade Tech for Culinary Arts or El Camino for pre-nursing. She has a passion for cooking and animals and hopes to one day start her own restaurant business or become a veterinarian. Cassandra will greatly miss the staff and friends here at Mychal’s, but can’t wait for Mychal’s Café to open and hopes to be able to work there on the weekends when she’s not in class! We are thrilled for Cassandra’s next chapter and so proud of her accomplishments. We know she has an incredibly bright future – keep up the amazing work!
