22-year-old Cassidy Hooper is inspiring millions of people with her enthusiasm for life and an optimistic attitude.
Hooper was born without a nose and eyes, a rare birth defect that hasn’t stopped her from reaching success and creating a path of independence.
She believed that she was a capable lady so she didn’t waste any time to live her life the way she wants it.
Hooper managed to become independent since she was in high school. She told WBTV that she boarded a bus every day all by herself to go to Governor Morehead School for the Blind in Raleigh, North Carolina.
In college, Hooper was a keen student while working at her weekend job. She kept up with her academic studies while also performing with the school choir.
Hooper is now a fresh graduate of Central Piedmont Community College in Charlotte, North Carolina.
“I don’t need easy, I just need possible,” Hooper said – a sentence she has told herself numerous times.
Like other college graduates, Hooper is still amazed that she now holds a degree. Accepting her diploma on stage was like a dream come true!
“I got out there and I realized, wait a minute, this is actually happening?” she told WBTV. “Am I dreaming or am I awake?”
She added: “It just shocked me at how fast the time went.”
Hooper, who has been interested in radio broadcasting, has also a developing passion for worship ministry.
The 22-year-old girl plans to spend the rest of the summer working at her high school in Raleigh. There is no doubt that she will become a role model to younger students who are having a lot of hesitations in life.
