U.R.V (Urvah Shahnawaz) born November 23rd 1985,
spent the first few years of her life in the heart of the
Middle East and was raised with strict values in a
traditional Islamic home. U.R.V grew up in Dubai and
comes from an Indo-Pakistan background. U.R.V’s mother
had been a strong influence in her life and introduced
her to media, the performing arts and music at a very
young age. U.R.V developed her gifts in Music, Canvas Art,
Dancing & Acting while maintaining a passion for Journalism
which was primarily influenced by her upbringing.

At the age of 16, U.R.V decided to make her own way
independent of family and broke ties with traditional
and ingrained cultural expectations. She embarked on
what can only be described as a courageous journey. Not
too long after starting her brave independent life, she
grew closer to her spiritual side and dedicated her life
to Christ.

Right after leaving the family home, U.R.V dropped out of
high school. Due to years of being tied down to rules and
regulation, U.R.V had the rebellious spirit to step out the
box to explore the world on her own.She successfully broke
through the cycles of drug abuse and gave up on living the
rough street life.

Coming from a family of musicians, U.R.V was never a
stranger to creating and living a life of music. Her biggest
influence is an artist known as M.I.A (Maya Arulparagasam).
U.R.V beleives that M.I.A has created a new genre of music,
where one is able to take their life experiences and
portray it positively with a head banging beat. U.R.V is also
extremely influenced by strong female artists such as,
Missy Elliot, Rah Digga, Gangsta Boo, Keiysha Cole & more.

U.R.V is a representation of what the independent thinking
woman in the new millennium looks like; She always strives
hard for what she wants for herself and those she has
been able to influence. Whether it is music, education or
life itself, she lives to pursue her dreams with a passion for
life.She is a confident performer who fearlessly writes and
raps about her life experiences.
