Definition: Chey’s Emprise

I’ve noticed a trend in my life. I love adventure. Actually, I crave adventure.


Chey is short for Cheyenne and Cheyenne is me! Starting as a childhood nickname, “Chey” is also what my co-workers and friends in Kenya call me as “Cheyenne” is too hard to say. Emprise is a word that comes from the Anglo-French word emprende meaning to “undertake.” Merriam-Webster defines the world as “an adventurous, daring, or chivalric enterprise.” I like to think that my stories, my blogs, and the things that I decide to pursue fall into this word very fittingly. Some of the categories include “State Office Journey” which includes my experiences as a Nebraska FFA state officer this past year, or “AGvocate” which shares stories and ideas about my journey as an agriculturist. The most current, “Kenya Edition,” is referring to my most current adventure, an internship with the World Food Prize, which has taken me to Mbita, Kenya for eight weeks this summer.


With these things being said, I hope this blog serves as a few things. The most obvious being a way to keep track of my travels to Kenya this summer and the ones that are sure to follow later in my education, career, and life. I’ve found that writing is my favorite form of reflection, a relaxing hobby, and a skill I would love to embrace and grow. I also want this blog to show an accurate depiction of who I am and a growth-oriented picture of who I want to become: as a traveler, a leader, an agriculturalist, and as a person.  I also post the occasional “inspo” post or even better the “travel inspo” post.
