Jacky Arrah Yenga: The Village Wisdom Messenger

Author of the upcoming book: The Spirit of the Village: How to break the habit of living disconnected and experience the joy of consciously living a more authentic and connected life where you belong

Originally from Cameroon, Central Africa, Jacky Yenga grew up in Paris and now lives in Vancouver, BC.  Her foundation for life was rooted in togetherness and collaboration, respect for the elders, for nature and the ancestors.  Living a connected life was her only reality, until the age of 9.  She experienced the trauma of disconnection when she was sent to the West to “live a better life”. Now she is an inspiring speaker and an enthusiastic ambassador for the wisdom of Africa and their message of togetherness, which she shares around the world in various forms, including as a singer, music and dance performer.
