Born and raised in Los Angeles, California in one of the most troubled and dangerous areas of South Central LA, Miss Tinsley was not only forced to watch families grieve over the death of loved ones killed at the hands of gun violence, but she also painfully watched a close childhood friend endure child abuse at the hands of both her mother and stepfather, prior to her passing in a car accident. Marked by emotional and psychological scars from all that she witnessed as a child, Miss Tinsley grew to become an advocate against child abuse.

Many of us dream of being doctors, lawyers, pediatricians, or even the president of the United States. We have heroes that we look up to, and role models whose actions become our blueprint as we journey into adulthood. At no time do we dream of being abused, beat into silence, or screamed at for making mistakes that should be learning experiences.
