Bio
Cheyenne Tucson became a student at Fort Lewis College (FLC) in the fall of 2018. She graduated high school in 2014 with her cosmetology license in South Carolina, and has recieved reciprocity in New Mexico and Colorado. Over the course of her career in the beauty industry, she began to realize that her love for hair was rooted in the science behind the sceen. She is currently practicing cosmetology along side her studies as she prepares for her journey into her new career in the computer engineering field. Her interest in the computer engineering field stems from her curiosity and infatuation with electronics as a teenager.

Cheyenne started working for Dr. Yiyan Li's lab in the summer of 2020. She has worked on projects related to robotics, analog/digital circuit design, embedded systems, and web development. Through these projects, she has expanded her knowledge of DC circuitry, learned various practical skills for designing circuits, gained experience in designing for clients, and further realized her passion for robotics and
