All about Cassandra
My name is Cassandra Vangellow. I am a junior journalism student at the University of Florida. Also, I am pursuing a concentration in political science with plans to attend law school.
I am originally from Fairport, New York. During the past two years, I have gained a Florida family and have enjoyed living in the South.
I love traveling and have had the opportunity to visit Spain, Italy, France, Hawaii and many other amazing places.
In addition, I am an avid runner. I recently ran the Disney Princess Half Marathon. I am looking forward to running more 5Ks in North Central Florida.
Participating in philanthropies is another hobby. I am the assistant director of external public relations for Gators March for Babies, which helps raise money for the March of Dimes. I was also a member of morale staff for Dance Marathon. It was an incredible experience to help raise $886,726.15 for the Children’s Miracle Network.
On a typical weekend, you can find me cheering on the Gators at various events and spending time with friends at local restaurants and coffee shops.
