Shyvonne Sanganoo known to you as @shyyvonne has been a Tnemnroda Woman before it was a hashtag!
She changes her hair color more than NYC weather but that spontaneity is not a testament to her strength and integrity. She empowered us with girl power, vibey anthems like "Damn" and "Miroir." And then put our social consciousness into song with "Would You." See her full interview with Daily news here.
Songstress, political advocate and educator, of course she'd be a Tnemnroda woman too!

When she's not touring with her music or living her best life around the world, she's working with kids in NYC schools.
"I teach global history through hip hop & music with Fresh Prep and also am the instructional coordinator for ChangeMKRS which is NYC after school programming rooted in social justice."
For more on Shyvonne's political influence check out the NY Daily News article which also features the full length video of her political protest song, Would You," produced by Robert Lux. See the lyrics below to sing along ✨
Who are you
What will you do
Or will you stay quiet
Cover your eyes
Swallow your tears
Ignore the violence
it was you, ur father, or ur brother, your sister or ur mother, could you let it go? X2
