I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples.
We hold this space as an opportunity to showcase those people we encounter now and then who simply show up every day with a radiant, uplifting spirit coupled with a genuine willingness to give back. That said, as Publisher and Editor-in-Chief of this award-winning global media digest and CEO/ReImaginator for 360° Nation, I was delighted to have the opportunity to get better acquainted with Cassandra Tindal, CEO & Executive Producer, WOM Media LLC & Womenz Straight Talk —whose multimedia enterprise focuses on producing real stories through content that enlightens, inspires, and informs the viewing audience or readers. Cassandra expresses her interest in raising social awareness of today’s global society through media.
Who is Cassandra Tindal?
I Cassandra A. Tindal, am a native New Yorker who grew up in the Bronx. My strong desire and curiosity to understand the world around me – guided a path to explore life through the colorful spectrum of the creative arts, philosophy, and religion.
I am a visionary, and creative designer who always loved to imagine different worlds through my own songwriting, and stage plays. My passion for the arts began at a very young age. I would create the scenes and get my friends to act out storylines and sing the songs I wrote. And dress them up in costumes while acting as the director. My mother was an amazing fashion designer and interior decorator. I remember her sitting me down at the sewing machine, at a very young age. She only had to show me once since creativity naturally was in my DNA.
During my Junior H.S. days, I received a Scholarship to attend the Fashion Industries H.S. and later went on to attend The Fashion Institute of Technology, where I Sharped my skills in fashion apparel design, illustration, and millinery design. I was also a part of the drama club at FIT and acted a part, on stage.
Telling stories in the form of artistic expressions, drawings, playwrights, songs, and costume design has always been my passion.
We’d like to hear about your professional journey up to now, and wisdom gained/lessons learned along the way, including any pivots/course changes.
Life took a turn for me when I was diagnosed with cancer. I consider myself a survivor in more ways than one. That’s when I suddenly realized that it was my turn to give back. I felt the need to do something that would be life-transformational for others. In a way that would inspire healing on all levels for humanity and the world.
