She will graduate in 2019, and plans to apply for a masters degree program at the University of Oklahoma.

Kent graduated Magna Cum Laude in 2014 from Tate High School where she was a member of the Multimedia Academy. She also attended Ransom Middle School and Pine Meadow Elementary, and volunteered at Escambia Westgate.
