Ravesa was born on Rekar III on Stardate 2355 to parents Vurik and Lene. When she was young, her family had a farm that provided a good portion of their community’s produce. As the oldest child, her father groomed her to take over the family farm someday. As much as Ravesa loved her father and cherished the time with him, her eyes were fixed on the stars. Much to her family’s disappointment, she enlisted with Starfleet at age 23 and completed the year-long Engineering training program, earning her the rank of Crewman First Class. In the years since graduation, she has worked her way up to Chief Petty Officer. She is currently enrolled in the Academy's distance learning program to become trained in Helm.
