Ever since a young age, Cassiah knew that she would be a writer and director, unable to escape from imagining stories and films in her head. 


After graduating from the University of Birmingham in July 2014 with a First Class Honours degree in BA Drama and Theatre Arts, Cassiah began her career working for writer/director/producer Gurinder Chadha OBE after a chance meeting on a train.


Cassiah now works as a writer and director for stage and screen, represented by Lily Williams at Curtis Brown.
