Born and raised in Flint, Michigan as an only child to a single mother, I grew up in the very urban city of Flint, Michigan, lovingly called “Flint-City” or “Bedrock” and those born there were often called “Flintstones”. A "hard" city, full of industrial factories and hard-working people. I consider myself a rose that grew out of concrete - witnessing first hand the impact of the crack epidemic on Flint, Michigan, which resulted in the death of so many people and the incarceration of others.
My mother encouraged me to become a lover of learning, knowledge, wisdom, and intelligence. As a result, I was in gifted classes throughout elementary and middle school.
High school was the same story. I continued gifted education, splitting my days between the suburbs attending Central High School and the more urban side of town attending Northwestern High School.
This was the catalyst for my ability to identify different mindsets that people possess based on their backgrounds and experiences, developing an uncanny ability to identify the underlying contexts associated with problems people have.
This could be the reason I went on to become a lawyer. And from there my education as a lawyer, combined with an undeniable interest in entrepreneurship, was the basis for becoming a successful Managing Member of Intelligence Learning Systems, LLC - a Georgia-based company focused on helping learners gain knowledge. From professional development and leadership skills for women and entrepreneurs to standardized testing and tutoring services (ACT, SAT, LSAT, GMAT, GRE, and MCAT) for students seeking entry to college, law school, and graduate school.
My previous hobbies of makeup artistry and photography even transitioned into full-blown businesses where I became known as Tynisha, The Atlanta Makeup Artist, and 1 Woman 1 Camera respectively. This is where I was able to meet several celebrities and become familiar with the Atlanta entertainment industry.
My Youtube channel has over 1.7 million views and consists of candid videos while relaxed in real-life environments speaking about topics from personal growth, motivation, cooking, makeup and beauty tips, business growth, relationships, and how to make this life more enjoyable.
GROW by definition means be in a state of becoming greater in
quantity (multiply all that I am - balanced and building),
size (live the biggest, fullest life possible - no shrinking back),
extent ( I endure the race - steady wins, not speed),
intensity (the degree to which you apply your effort - go hard for yourself so you can go hard for others)."
