About the Vision

MYHNY = ‘my honey’ = Damme


MYHNY is the self-titled brand of Damme’s most authentic self. 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 - 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 and now resides in Brooklyn, NY.
