    Cheyenne's Bio:
    Hello hello, my name is Chey! I fully admit that I am an over achiever and a slacker simultaneously. I am really involved in social justice on campus, especially the Indigenous Student Alliance. I love cats and science fiction. I come from a big family so community and connections are important to me.

Being an off campus student this year has been a great experience so far. I live with my two best friends and I pay less for my housing. However being off campus while not having a vehicle was something that took some time to adjust to. I was very nervous to use the public bus on a daily basis. My fears ran along the lines of, “what if I take the wrong bus” and “what if I miss the bus I need?”

These fears seem to be common. I also struggled with interacting with the patrons of the bus system. However I recognize most of the passengers on my various routes and it isn’t frightening any more.

I soon found out that even if I missed the bus I needed or hopped on the wrong route, there was always a way to fix it. Sometimes I have 30 to 50 minute waits for the next bus, but I always have a book with me to occupy my time. Like most things in life practice is necessary to master it. The only thing that is still stressful to me is worrying about getting to my bus stop on time so I can make it to class. Riding the public bus is far from scary now!
