Malawi where she serves in her capacity as a spokesperson.

Katie’s background, education, her early introduction to the world of entertainment, the cosmopolitan culture of LA and her natural inborn talent all came together to produce the multi-talented personality we know and love today.

As a child, Katie Cassidy took lessons in gymnastics, singing, piano, guitar, dancing and acting. She also attended Calabasas High School where she graduated from in 2005. But before her graduation, the rising star was already modelling and attending acting classes, preparing for her future in the entertainment industry.
