Experiencing Interruptions?

Did I Choose My Trauma?

Director Biography - Yemi Joy Penn

Yemi Penn is a fearless woman and thought leader on creating your own memo, meaning ‘she’ gets to write the script of her life and encourages others to do the same.

She is a serial entrepreneur with a common thread of transformation across her businesses, whether it be transforming Sydney’s rail network as an engineer, transforming physical health in her F45 gym or shifting the perspective of our minds as she supports people in creating a life that they not only want but deserve.

More recently Yemi has added documentary producer to her repertoire as she shifts her core life’s purpose to raising the vibration of acknowledging and healing our individual and therefore collective trauma.
