Early Life, Education, and Pageantry

Miss Teen USA and Other Achievements
Wolf travelled to the Bahamas to compete as a part of Miss Teen USA 2013; this iteration of the pageant was hosted by Australian journalist Karl Jeno Schmid alongside Miss Teen USA 2003 Tami Farrell. The previous winner of the pageant, Logan West was there to crown her successor – Wolf would go on to win the competition. All 50 states and the District of Columbia competed that year, and the competition was streamed online through Xbox Live. Her win there led her to become the 31st Miss Teen USA; the title holder has responsibilities akin to many national pageant titleholders during their one year reign.
While managing her duties as Miss Teen USA, she enrolled at New York Film Academy – School of Film and Acting (NYFA) which is a well-known acting school. She then moved to Los Angeles and became a part of the campus there. The school was founded in 1992, and has over 5,000 students enrolled annually, with many of them from overseas. Thanks to her achievements, she became a semi-finalist for the Los Angeles Music Center Spotlight Awards.
Sextortion and Recent Endeavors
In late-2013, Cassidy became the victim of a sextortion case, in which a hacker attempted to blackmail her using photographs of her taken from her laptop webcam. She reported the threat to the authorities leading to the FBI getting involved. The hacker was demanding a special performance and videos from her; after investigations, the FBI tracked the suspect Jared James Abrahams who was her former high school classmate. He was arrested and pleaded guilty to hacking the computers of up to 150 women.
To gain nude images and videos from the victims, he installed a highly invasive malware called Blackshades, which allowed him to remotely control the computers of his victims. It was revealed that one of his victims was a 14-year old girl. He was sentenced to 18 months in federal prison. Since then, she has moved on with her life, and became a Merit Recipient for the National Young Arts Foundation. She was also awarded talent scholarships to attend New York City’s Joffrey Ballet, and was invited to the professional Trainee Jazz Program. She worked with MTV too, becoming a co-host for an episode of “Catfish: The TV Show”. The reality television series follows the world of online dating, along with the truths and lies within it.
Personal Life and Social Media
For her personal life, not much is known in terms of any of Wolf’s romantic relationships – sources believe that she is single due to the lack of any evidence to prove otherwise. That is likely the case as she is busy developing her career, and shows no signs of a potential partner on any of her public accounts. She owns a pet dog and loves travelling around the world, a perk due to her work as a model. She has worked with several publications during her career, including “Maxim France”.
Similar to numerous beauty queens and models, she is active online through accounts on social media. She has an account on Instagram on which she has over 80,000 followers and it states that she resides in Los Angeles, California. The account gives a bit of insight into her day to day endeavors, which shows her travelling around the world. She’s recently been to Bali, Indonesia and has also travelled around the US for modelling projects as well as for festivals. Another account she has is on Twitter, on which she has over 8,000 followers but she hasn’t been active on it since mid-2018.
