Read further for a deeper insight on this next top female influencer and what inspired her
determination for her goals.

Where are you from and if it is any different from now, what inspired your move?

● I am from Owensboro, Kentucky, I live in Los Angeles California, and I have been for the
past five years now, I moved out here to pursue a career as a professional dancer. There is
not much of an industry for entertainment, especially dancing and making it an actual
career back home so I did move across the country for that reason.

When did you discover your passion for dance?

● I discovered my passion for dancing when I was a little girl. I started dancing around age
four, but I did dabble in cheer and gymnastics too but I really realized I loved dancing my
sophomore year of high school. I took it really seriously and auditioned for a company
and it took my training to the next level and more seriously. I was dancing at least four to
five days a week for at least three to four hours a day.
Who is someone who has inspired your dance career growing up
● As someone who inspired my dance career growing up, it was definitely just the typical
answer I feel like for most people would be Michael Jackson. I used to watch his
concerts, I had him on a VHS tape. I remember I had Michael Jackson’s greatest hits and
it was a DVD of his number one music videos. I used to put that on my tv in my room
and I used to put it on repeat all the time. And then I also had a VHS of one of his tours
that was filmed at a concert. I used to watch and just study that all the time, so he was
probably one of the biggest influencers on me

What are your goals for your platform?

● As far as my goals for my platform, ever since I was little I’ve always loved entertaining
people whether singing, dancing, acting, or putting on a show of any kind, I just loved
entertaining. So for my platform, I want to continue entertaining people whether making
someone stay or inspiring people or definitely just putting a smile on someone’s face.
That’s what I want to continue to do. Now more on the business side of it, I want to make
Cassidy Payne more so a brand itself and a business, not just a face. I do want to be able
to for myself, my career, and my future utilize my platform to open other doorways for
me when it comes to entertaining in the industry whether that be acting, television,
commercials, modeling. I would love to take advantage of my platform and have that
open many doors for me.

How do you plan to continue to grow your audience and build your career further?

● As far as maintaining my audience and building my career I feel like just continuing to
utilize my platform and showing all different sides of me and what I do have to offer
whether that be doing funny skits, you know just sharing the day in my life, makeup,
style, fashion, dancing waver it may to the writer and photographer in the write up as well.
