My name is Cassandra Zaring. I usually go by Cassie though. I go to VCU where I major in Mass Communications with a concentration in Strategic Advertising and minor in business. I work at Capital One Cafe in the short pump mall as a barista. I grew up in Kentucky in the care of my grandparents while my dad was in the US Army. When he received his honorary discharge, I moved to Fredericksburg to live with him and my adoptive mother. There I enrolled in the high school advanced placement program, Commonwealth Governor’s School, and met my boyfriend, Tim.
