About the Vision

MYHNY = ‘my honey’ = Damme


MYHNY is a visual and literary platform of diasporic consciousness, where the awareness of being ‘scattered’ and the various forms in which its embodied in American-born and/or American-raised African identities are explored. Damme is committed to seeking liberation through global storytelling; MYHNY is the self-titled brand of her most authentic self.

MYHNY - pronounced ‘my honey’ - is the English translation of Damme, the Afaan Oromo name given to her by her maternal grandmother at birth. Damme was born and raised in Seattle, WA by her Ethiopian immigrant parents.
