It wasn't an accident, she simply made a mistake. Well several mistakes, but this one in particular changed her life forever. Faced with a choice to wallow in her own self-pity or surrender to the call upon her life, she chose the latter.
Nyshell Lawrence made her public speaking debut at an early age. Born and raised in Lansing, MI; she quickly developed a passion for art. She is a young, talented, risk-taker whose mission is to impact the world through her artistry. She's a big believer in pursuing passions, following dreams and living beyond limits. As a matter of fact, that's her mantra. It's the reason she exists and she wants you to be inspired to do the same.
From single mom to wife and creative entrepreneur, Nyshell transparently shares her journey from tragedy to triumph and passionately delivers the uncompromised gospel, through the art of performance poetry. She is the author of Scarred: The Beauty In My Pain (2012), and SHE: A Sista Girls’ Guide to Overcoming Her Past & Pursuing A Limitless Future (2016). She’s committed to helping this generation get unstuck and relentlessly go after the life God predestined for them.
Nyshell is happily married to Jonathan W. Lawrence; together they have three daughters, Joelle, Olyvia & Emerson.
Her work is transparent, transformative, honest and real. Be a part of the movement that is "Nyshell."
