About this title


From Nothing to New York. They say there's a "preparatory process before every promise" but how much does one person have to endure to reach their "destination?" Sacrifice. Loneliness. Brokenness. Homelessness. Death. Delay. Denial? From her first day of high school to her first summer in NYC, Cassondra Lenoir discovers 13 pillars for successful living. Cassondra doesn't know who she is, however what she does know is what she wants...and that’s fame and fortune. From a little girl she always desired to live in New York City and see her name in lights but she had no clue the cost she would have to pay to make this dream become her reality. Life is all about the choices you make. With big dreams and the desire of living in an even bigger reality, one day at a time Cassondra decides to turn her Nothing into New York. Whether you're 14 or 48, you will find an empowering message of hope, perseverance and guidance on how you too can turn your "nothing" into "New York." Join her on the journey. A percentage of every book sale will go to the Couture Swagg Scholarship. Couture Swagg is the entertainment and media company Cassondra Lenoir started as a campus organization in college and then launched into the "real world," in New York, on February 19, 2014. The first Couture Swagg Scholarship will be awarded in Spring of 2016. First generation college students in their senior year of high school will be eligible to apply for the essay-based scholarship contest.

About the Author:

With one month’s rent, a ten dollar an hour internship lined up at one of the largest media agencies and a boat load of faith, Cassondra Lenoir made the big move to New York City on May 29, 2012. Only 16 days out of college, the St. Louis, Mo. native had absolutely no idea where she would be living once June ended, if she would have enough money to save and provide for herself or what her first summer away from all her family and friends would entail. However, what she did know was that with her internship ending in August and “nothing” to go back to, the desire to have a full time position in New York quickly became her only focus. Instantaneously her motto, ‘the proof of passion is pursuit,’ became her way of life and with many sacrifices that’s exactly what she’s done - pursued her passions. As a first generation college graduate from a single-parent household, the great Langston Hughes' words reign true: “Life for me ain’t been no crystal stair.” Over the past 3 years, Cassondra has realized that everything she thought was "nothing" prepared her for New York. Her first book entitled, "From Nothing to New York" expands on her journey of self-discovery and success. The book begins in high school where she acquired the majority of her greatest life lessons and continues through her first summer in New York City. From a little girl her mother always instilled in her the love of Christ and that anything worth having is worth working for, so not giving New York her all was out of the question. From being full-time to fired, the now entertainment and media company Owner (Couture Swagg), Talk Show Host, Event Planner and the NOW published Author has victoriously overcome countless obstacles. During Cassondra’s road to self-discovery she continues to unveil new parts of herself and is a strong advocate of the quote, “It’s not about the destination but the journey.” Through her networking events, website’s updates and the life she lives, Cassondra continuously encourages everyone to take advantage of and enjoy the journey because EVERY MOMENT COUNTS! One touch from God can change your life - One person. One conversation. One phone call. One divine connection can completely switch your life around and turn your nothing into “New York.”
