My name is Cheyenne Thornton and I am a 29-year-old adopted and disabled autistic writer born in Queens, New York and raised in Georgia. After serving in the US Navy from 2010-2014, I found work in the beauty industry, but was unable to continue my career path due to service-connected disabilities and late-diagnosed developmental disorders. My involvement in the online disability community led me back to writing, my first love, and after earning my B.A. in English from Long Island University Brooklyn, I decided to pursue their MFA program in TV Writing and Production at Steiner Studios. I am now focused on creating a portfolio that showcases the views, experiences and possibilities of disabled minorities with hopes of one day seeing more diverse representation onscreen
