Personal life

Robyn's parents are actors, and she herself was involved in acting at the age of 9, with an extra role in Kronbruden at the Swedish theatre Dramaten.
.After the release of her second album in 1999, My Truth, Robyn became a UNICEF ambassador and visited, among other countries, Kenya and Tanzania.^ Her following album My Truth was released in May 17, 1999, but not in the US (though it was promised to be) because her American record company RCA didn’t think the album contained any potential hits.

During her two years of dedicating herself to this work, she intended to draw attention to UNICEF and their worldwide work for children in need of aid.
In 2000, Povel Ramel awarded her the Karamelodiktstipendiet, a scholarship for her musical achievements where most of the reward lies in the prestige and honour, and not financial incentives.
