From the death of multiple family members to falling extremely ill, Shelby Tinsley faced a trying time last year.
The now 26-year-old also was unable to find employment after receiving her master’s degree in Industrial/Organizational Psychology from the University of Detroit Mercy.
“I did question my existence at that time,” Tinsley said.
However, Tinsley credits her faith for allowing her to press through the difficult period. In the process, she created a diary of uplifting quotes collected through resources including YouTube videos, books and church sermons. In an effort to help others persevere through hardships, Tinsley developed iShallBe, an app-based platform that provides daily motivational messages through videos and testimonials from real people.
The app launched in October. For more about Tinsley visit http://ishallbe.co/
