Adding Details con't:
My name is Cassandra. I am eleven years old. I have hair the colour of cinnamon toast (without the crust), fair skin, except where it's speckled like an overripe banana. My eyes are like summer mountains (that's blue with a little bit of green in case you were wondering). I like to swim in anything except the ocean because I'm scared that a shark will bite my leg off. My mom says that sharks only swim in warm water but I don't believe her.
