Mysti graduated from the John D. O’Bryant School, having taken rigorous AP classes, and was enthused about pursing her education at the University of Delaware and pursuing a career in archaeology. She enjoys reading anthropology and history in her spare time, and it is not unusual to see her with a textbook in hand, even when not attending classes. However after one semester, she was unable to take out loans to pay for tuition. When she applied for an Alray Scholarship, she was out of school and needed a mentor to help her find her way back. Mysti was accepted at the Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts, contingent upon the release of her transcript from the University of Delaware.
