Cheyanne was raised in South River, New Jersey and struggled with addiction for most of her adolescence. The denial she lived in about her drug problem was strong, but eventually she realized that entering a program of recovery was her only option if she wanted to stay alive. When she entered recovery at the age of 20, Cheyanne was inspired to go back to school. She has enjoyed academia more than she ever thought possible and has watched her GPA rise every semester. Cheyanne is currently studying Education and Addiction Studies at Kean University. Using her own experience and her passion for helping others, Cheyanne hopes to encourage individuals in recovery to return to school and thrive!
