New Year, new you! Need help getting it all together? Florida A&M graduate Shelby Tinsley created iShallBe, an app that delivers daily motivational affirmations straight to your mobile device. The platform sends you quotes, inspirational videos, and affirmations once a day in an effort to encourage you to get motivated.
“I do have faith that iShallBe will motivate other people,” stated Tinsley.
There are several apps currently like this on the market, including Thinkup, Motivate, and Shine, so what makes this different? For starters, it was created by an African-American founder and the backdrop is interfaced with African Americans connecting it back to the community. Additionally, the content and community showcases tons of African American users.
This is great for the culture as there are so many negative images and messages in social media currently being unearthed that it gives the multicultural community a place where they can go to embrace positivity.
“iShallBe was created with the strong desire to encourage others to get through all trials and tribulations, and remind you that there will be victory at the end of all troubles,” states the site. “iShallBe will supply nourishment to both mind and soul. However, it is up to you to remain faithful and speak nothing but love, joy, and positivity in your life. For if you speak it, it shall be.”
