My name is Cheyenne...
I’m the game creator of Celestial dance, Voice actress and coder by trade and university student. This is the first time I’m ever showing my face on social media aside from a personal account. (.////.) I was born and raised in Ontario, Canada- But I’m mixed with basically everything (Spanish, Chinese, Trini, Persian to name a few) . I’m an avid gamer, Language lover, coffee obsessed and an overall dork.
I began CD as a shy pre-teen but since I’ve stared I’ve met at least a thousand people: Some incredible and some who changed my life in other ways. A few of my voice actors stopped being voice actors, and became life-long friends, and the rest don’t remember who I am or just don’t like me.
I made this post to introduce myself for real... to overcome my fear of showing the world who I really am, and to tell you guys thank you for everything. To the VAs who humour me in the ridiculous dialogue you had to record, to the ones who skype/email me, to the users on tumblr, to the ones who have worked with me and didn’t complain, to the ones on my blog to everyone who has done anything to interact with me or this game.
Thank you. Thank you all for changing my life. I owe you all so much more than I can possibly give.
Almost a year ago, and for so many years before someone said something to me: They said "If you show me what you look like, and you're ugly, I'm not going to talk to you anymore." For the last twenty years of my life (which is all of them) I have avoided posting my picture anywhere. I was terrified that my VAs would stop talking to me- I was afraid I'd lose friends. I was afraid of not being taken seriously or that my friends would start seeing me as a woman instead of a friend and it's been... a lot of fear, a lot of anxiety but I'm free now. I'm not afraid.
I said I'd at least one thing a week that scares me- three things is a goal. I sent one email to someone I was afraid of, held a functional conversation with someone I was terrified of and figured the feeling I feel now cannot be worse. So here we are. Welcome to knowing what I look like. YAY.
I'm a total dork who writes too much all the time because I like typing and I used to write novel-length stories and I'm just a weird person who does some things and breathes and stuff.
