Badgyalcassiee, Artist dancer and choreographer
Having arrived in France from Central Africa at the age of 7, Cassie is driven by her love of African dance; its culture, its pace and the stories it has to tell. Learning to dance was her route to liberty – and a means of projecting her individua¬lity, rather than hiding behind an expected norm. Social media has become her platform to spread the wave of change. She uses it to showcase her art and build a community of others who, like her, no longer want to live by the rules.
Chloé Caillet, Producer and DJ
One night, Chloé had a dream about being a girl DJ. The next day, she went out to buy decks. Now a successful DJ and music producer, Chloé taught herself the skills she needed to forge her own path in life and is encouraged that other women in the industry are now being taken more seriously. Yet, as a code-breaker she’s had to go against a system in which women are not considered business leaders – and DJ’ing is not thought of as a proper job. Now, she’s free. She’s a nomad. She loves to discover the magic in every city, sprinkle it around and fuel the audacity in her own performance.
Jasmine Asia, Gamer and model
As a child, gaming made Jasmine feel better – like she belonged in her world of her own making. The greatest barrier she has had to overcome was her own mind: she had to unlearn everything anyone had ever told her about gaming. Today, Jasmine is leading the change for an era that challenges how people see women in gaming with a new mindset that generates change. A place where women can create a space to connect with each other and create their own rules, embrace their originality and their art – without being bound by the outside world.
