The daughter of a music professor and a physician, Chesna was born and raised away from the Andorian homeworld on Earth's moon. Her parents tried to immerse her in as much Andorian culture as possible in the Sol system, but it was inevitable that Chesna and her younger brother would come to adopt many human customs and tastes, and she considers herself a proud "Lunar schooner," having taken part especially in the traditions of New Berlin such as the city's Mazurka Festival.
As a more masculine shen, Chesna was particularly gifted in athletic endeavors and participated in various sports competitions as a child and early into her teenage years. However, her father's musical background spurred an interest in ballet for her, and she devoted most of her remaining teenage years into the art.
Although her father is a professor at the University of New Berlin, Chesna did not attend post-secondary education until her early twenties, choosing instead to spend some time on Andor after she graduated high school and dance professionally. Unfortunately, she did not find the experience completely satisfying as she felt alienated from the native Andorian population. She started a few classes while on Andor but did not complete any degree programs. Meanwhile, her brother, whom she is particularly fond of, followed in her mother's footsteps and started his training to become a surgeon.
On the eve of her 24th birthday, Chesna decided to apply for Starfleet Academy, but her application was rejected. She took a year off completing additional schooling on Earth before she was accepted to the Academy on her second admissions attempt.
