An avid advocate for creativity and education at an early age, Tyson blossomed academically and went on to excel as a student-athlete during his high school years.

After a successful collegiate basketball career, mildly abbreviated from a near-fatal car accident, Tyson went on to receive his Bachelor's degree in Human Services Management. After a short stint living in Atlanta, he moved back home to Mississippi where he began studying to become an educator. He attended Mississippi Valley State University and Full Sail University in 2010 and 2013 respectively, earning a 3.5 GPA with a Master's of Education degree in Secondary Education and a 3.4 GPA with a Master's of Fine Arts degree in Creative Writing.
