Marissa Mishelle appeared on MTVs My Super Sweet 16 two years ago, where her diva demands included for everything at her pricey party to be pink right down to her dog.
Nowadays, Mishelle insists shes no longer the brat she was on the show.
To prove it, she went to India for the new series Exiled, a spin-off of Sweet 16 which takes alums to poverty stricken countries for a reality check.
The trip worked for the Arizona-based teen.
She says her experience in the jungles of India was eye- opening and shes more aware of whats going on around her now.
The cleansing trip even inspired her to pursue her dream of being a singer.
Shes currently touring California in an old camper on the Vans Warped Tour, and while life on the road isnt as comfy as home, she wouldnt change it for anything.
Exiled premieres August 25 on MTV.
