Posted on 16 February 2017
Meet our Brand Ambassador Babe of the week, Kassady Sever! Kassady is a Senior at the University of Delaware where she majors in Fashion Merchandising, Entrepreneurial Studies and Organizational Leadership. Kassady has been on the eff.Y.bee team for over two years, joining us when she was a Sophomore. During her time with us Kassady has accomplished so much including several trunk shows to benefit the Make a Wish Foundation, a bulk order to support a new organization on her campus focused on empowering women and has recruited several of her Chi Omega sisters to join our team. She was also crowned Miss Delaware Earth last year where she was able to make a difference by raising awareness for environmental issues. Kassady's ambition, passion and leadership make her an eff.Y.bee girl.
What did you want to be when you were a little girl?
For as long as I can remember, my dream was to go into fashion. I am still pursing this dream as a senior Fashion Merchandising major at UD!
How did you get started in the Pageant world?
I began competing in Pageants my freshman year of college. After being very involved in high school (cheerleading, swimming, coaching, etc.), I found myself extremely bored when I got to college. I had worked at an Evening Gown / Bridal Boutique for the last four years, so I was familiar with the pageant world. I decided to give it a try, and after placing 2nd runner up I caught 'the bug'. I've been competing ever since!
Tell us about your experience as Miss Delaware Earth.
Being able to hold a state pageant title was such an honor, and the experience of a lifetime. I was able to meet with different State leaders and discuss environmental issues. I created a blog and social media platforms, allowing my voice and passion to be heard. My favorite part of my reign was competing at the national Miss Earth United States pageant with 50 other women who shared my passion.
What's currently in your handbag?
Portable phone charger, MAC lipstick, a Starbucks giftcard, mints, and my polaroid camera (I don't go anywhere without it!!)
What do you love most about being an eff.y.bee girl?
Being an eff.y.bee girl has given me so much, and I will forever be thankful for this experience. The one thing I love most is the mentor, and friend, I have gained. Alyssa (Founder & CEO) goes above and beyond to help her girls find their passions and follow their dreams. I admire her drive and creativity.
What's your biggest accomplishment with eff.y.bee to date?
My biggest accomplishment thus far was planning the collaboration with Women Ready. and eff.y.bee. We were able to raise money for an incredible cause, while giving the team beautiful bracelets to wear. Women Ready is a Registered Student Organization that focuses on bringing feminine products to homeless women in the Delaware area.
Where do you hope to see yourself after graduation?
Working PR for a luxury fashion company ... hopefully in NYC!
