Today's guest is Isami Daehn.
Isami was born in Japan in 1989 and moved to the United States in 2007. Raised by a Japanese father and an American mother, she was raised bilingually. (She honestly doesn't know which her first language was!)
Unfortunately, her home was not a safe place for children. Physical and verbal abuse were "normal" in her home. After she became an adult, the relationship did not get any better.
In 2017, Isami became permanently estranged from her parents.
She was depressed and unable to see herself in a positive way. After much inner work and healing, she realized that the estrangement did not define her worth.
Having discovered this, her passion is to share the same empowerment by coaching, speaking, and creating content.
Isami is a survivor of child sexual abuse and mental health advocate (Her abuser was also her church pianist from ages 9-almost 14).
She was raised in church all of her life, but says she did not meet Jesus until she was 23.
It took being removed from my abusive home/church to realize her abusers and Jesus were completely opposite.
She considers herself an anomaly. As most would (and understandably so) never want to have anything to do with God ever again.
➕Isami has hosted safety/abuse seminars for church leaders
➕Created content for those struggling with mental health
➕Spoken on multiple podcasts/live videos across the globe
She has received some of the best diversity & inclusion training as a former international flight attendant and currently as an employee of Forbes top #2 largest employers to work for in the United States.
She also has an international CPC coaching certification as well as an interdisciplinary studies degree in psychology/communications/design.
And she wants to speak to your church/youth group/organization!
If you are truly concerned about the safety of your congregation, want your staff to have a broader understanding of diversity & inclusion, and/or want someone to encourage your church/youth group/organization:
Isami is here to help!
