MANILA, Philippines - Cassandra was born in the US and raised in the Philippines. She is a graduate of De La Salle Manila with a degree in AB Psychology. She made sure she got her college diploma before joining the Bb. Pilipinas pageant.

Janine Tugonon and Venus Raj are two of her beauty queen idols. She thinks Venus is very personable and regal while Janine is the epitome of hard work.

Describing herself as someone who isn't the beauty pageant type, Cassandra says she had to work on her confidence and get used to being in the public eye.
