Cassie Ventura: Multiracial Beauty, Multi-Gifted
As with all multi racial people sometimes in photos they look black sometimes white sometimes latin. That is the case with Cassie who is plainly multiracial. She really looks like her mom, see pic below but the hair is Asia for sure. She is a melting pot and her order of races and ethnicities as I see it: Asian, European, Black. The ethnicity she claims are Philipino, Black and African, Mexican and Native American probably. She works for Wilhelmina models now but just got a Calvin Klein job and in the pics she looks black with long Asian hair much like Zimora Lee founder of Baby Phat and former wife of the rapper what’s his face. She has been in films and is a singer but have not heard her sing. We will see what pans out for her probably the modeling tip since she is the face of the new majority minority.
Casandra Ventura was born on August 26, 1986 in New London, Connecticut. Her father is of Filipino ancestry, and her mother is of African American, Mexican, and West Indian ancestry. She attended The Williams School, a preparatory school in New London. She trained as a singer and dancer, and took voice lessons. Cassie began modeling at the age of 14, and by the time she was 16, appeared in print ads for Seventeen and the catalog for popular teen line, Delia’s,. When she graduated from high school in 2004, she decided to pursue her career in modeling and singing. After high school, Cassie moved to New York City, and continued modeling, as well as attending classes at the Broadway Dance Center. She is represented by Wilhelmina Models and One Model Management in New York City. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cassie_(singer)
