Shelby Tinsley, Founder & CEO of iShallBe Daily Affirmation App, has created a multi-dimensional platform to encourage people to affirm purposeful thoughts and ideas into existence. As a young leader in the tech industry, Shelby has a lifetime of experience, creating opportunities through connecting words and people. As a newborn, she was named after an affirmation that she “Shall Be” all things without reservation.
As one of youngest women of color to design and launch an application of this kind, she has remained unwavering in her unique approach to ensure that people’s thoughts become their reality. Prior to stepping into her purpose, Shelby worked to educate diverse populations in best practices of employee engagement and company structures for government agencies, healthcare providers and private industry.
Moreover, Shelby is a graduate of Florida Agricultural & Mechanical University, where she discovered her ability to creatively transform lives. She also holds a Master’s of Art, in Industrial-Organizational Psychology, from the University of Detroit Mercy to help evaluate and assess productivity through various work environments. She is experienced in initiatives and projects that centered around active learning, classroom methodology and STEM. As a member of the NAACP and Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc., she has learned the fundamental approach to servant leadership—which she has brought into the operation of iShallBe. While growing up on the eastside of Detroit and becoming a product of her local public schools, Shelby has identified the beauty of encouraging individuals to find their talents and purpose.
