Having been born blind Cassandra used her feet for orientation. When she started “drumming” them too hard on the ground, she switched to playing the African drum. At the age of three, she became deeply fascinated by Chopin, so she started improvising on a piano, playing her first melodies and eventually sang her own songs. She loved to feel the audience and share her inner feelings.

When she experienced bullying in 5th grade, she wrote her intimate song “Bullies” to cope with her situation and instantly won the national songwriting contest of the Berliner Festspiele in 2015. This appreciation made her stronger. Cassandra started to appear on radio and in several TV productions, worked with international artists in a museum. In 2016, she successfully joined the TV show “Dein Song” for young composers, worked on her composition in a camp on Ibiza and sang her song “Going home” in the finale feat. Sara Hartman. In 2017 she was among the 5-week-winners with her song “The way I am” at the Berklee College of Music in Boston which she originally wrote for a social association. Returning from the US she started working on the title song “The day I became strong” for the “Prix Jeunesse International 2018” a festival and competition for 500 children-/youth broadcasting companies.
