ShayyDee: Early Life, Birth, and Family
Shakoveonce Reed Aka “ShayyDee” was born on July 14, 2000, in Davenport, Iowa, United States.
The four-pound six ounces Albino baby girl was very sickly since her birth.
Born to Tabitha Sanders Aka “Ma Dee” and an unknown father, ShayyDee’s family, went through a rollercoaster ride while raising her.
In a youtube video, ShayyDee’s mother, Tabitha, opens up about giving birth to ShayyDee, saying that the labor lasted for a couple of days, which was very hard for her.
Because her pregnancy result initially came out negative, Tabitha had no idea that she was pregnant.
Later, after a month of taking a depo-shot (contraceptive injection), Tabitha started feeling sick.
In her next pregnancy test, she came out positive. Shayy wasn’t due until August 2, and the pregnancy was seemingly normal.
However, on the morning of July 12, Tabitha was shocked to find blood all over her bathroom, which made her think it was a miscarriage.
Amongst the confusion, pain, and frustration, finally, on July 14, Shayy was prematurely born.

Premature Birth and Hospital Journey
In that very three-part youtube video uploaded by the channel “Mz peach” in February 2020, Tabitha explained that it was hard for the doctors to believe that ShayDee’s father was African-American because she was very pale.
Later they found that she had a genetic disorder called Albinism, which caused her skin, hair, and eyes to have minimal pigment or color.
Not only pale, but Shayy also had blue, green pigment in her skin. Tabitha was almost sure that Shay wasn’t alive because all Shayy did was look with her eyes open without crying or moving a single bit.
The doctors immediately took her from Tabitha and put her in an incubator with a breathing machine and feeding tubes.
Moreover, the doctors said that Shayy couldn’t be taken home yet as she showed a lot of complications.
So, Tabitha stayed with Shayy in the hospital while giving partial custody to her mother to take care of her other daughter Onna.
However, the doctors had already asked Tabitha to start preparations for Shayy’s funeral as the baby Shayy was very frail.
But miraculously, Shayy slowly started eating and breathing better and gaining more weight. Finally, Shayy was able to go home from the hospital.
At the time of her birth, Shayy’s biological father was locked up in jail, and her mother(Tabitha) was living with her new boyfriend.
After Shayy returned home, everyone in the family was happy. Her older sister Onna is very protective of her and loves her very much.
Later, Shayy and her family moved to Louisville, Mississippi.
ShayyDee: Therapy, Illness, Seizures, and Coma
While ShayyDee was one or one and a half years old, her mother got her involved in a physical therapy program in Mississippi as she was not walking.
In that early learning program, Shayy learned to catch up with physical activities from her therapist, Ms. Mary.
One day, when ShayyDee was three years old, her mother found her lying all blue, cold, and still.
Further, she was rushed to the hospital, where her family found out that she had a seizure in her sleep.
ShayyDee was again admitted to a hospital in Jackson, Mississippi. When the doctors tried to give her CPR, she had already gone into a coma and wouldn’t wake up.
Later, Shayy woke up in the arms of her grandmother, Annie.
According to Tabitha, ShayyDee walked for the first time in the hospital. Moreover, she finally began walking at the age of three.
ShayyDee: Education, School, and Bullying
ShayyDee started Pre-K at the age of five. Being a unique and almost distinctive child, public school was very hard for her.
Her school friends talked about her, laughed, threw stuff at her, and were mean to her.
At first, ShayyDee was insecure about her skin tone, how she walked, and how boney she was.
But later on, ShayyDee learned to accept herself and socialize more, which made more people like her.

In that particular video, she opened up about her three surgeries.
Moreover, she had gone through a surgical procedure in her leg, twice in her eyes to get it lifted, and in her backbone.
Shayy had also been molested by a family member when she was only nine years old.
When she was 12, her backbone’s small curve was estimated to be unharmful, but it turned out to be fatal scoliosis as she grew older.
As a result, at the age of 18, she had to go through back surgery.
Similarly, at the age of 17, Shayy discovered that she had lumps in her breast. Upon checking it in the hospital, they turned out to be breast cysts.
Additionally, in her video, she said there was one lump on her left side and three on her right. Fortunately, it wasn’t cancer.
ShayyDee: Going Viral
ShayyDee went viral in 2016 when she was only 16 and in high school. Her video blew up on Facebook after doing the “break em challenge.”
Although she had gone viral and gained fame, a massive number of hate comments and feedback left her downhearted.
Moreover, all the responses from random people were undoubtedly very overwhelming for a 16-year-old.
It was tough for her because she had been bullied and belittled her whole life and judged for the way she looked.
However, that viral video did help her make more friends in school as more kids were curious to know her.
ShayyDee: Depression and Mental Health
Shayy, in her video, also disclosed her mental condition in the past.
She said,” Because of my health issues, I fought with depression a lot. It was depressing because I felt like nobody could help me, nothing was changing, nothing was getting better for me.”
She added, “So, I felt like I was in a dark place. I used to get bullied.”
After the overwhelming and hurtful response from the public, ShayyDee thought she couldn’t keep doing it.
So one day, she tried to kill herself by taking a lot of pills. Thankfully she was taken to the hospital by her mom.
Shayy expresses that she is doing good and is trying to work through the pain while she makes more music and more videos for her audience.
