Who is Yasmin Choudhury?
MsYiY (Ms Yasmin Is Yasmin) is a podcast produced and recorded by Yasmin Choudhury, a British female start up social entrepreneur based in London.
What is MsYiY podcast about?
It is a podcast series to capture stories of broken hearts and burdens.
It first started off as an audio series of personal narrative based onYasmin's life as a British social entrepreneur working for developing world especially Bangladesh. Where she wants to empower women and place more pennies into the pockets of poor. In 2015 she landed into a huge international crisis. In attempting to honour my late father's philanthropic wishes she also endured honour abuse at the hands of her own British Muslim family.
Often, in the podcast, Yasmin asks her guests to share past and present experiences. She herself grew up in a British Bangladeshi Muslim immigrant family. And of her secret burden, the insane struggle of ensuring her beloved late father’s will and legacy is executed including the one-third he wanted donated to Bangladesh people. Although he suddenly died in 2004 - over a decade later, in 2015, his wishes remain unfulfilled. And why this conflict saw her disconnect from her very own devout Muslim family born and brought up in the UK.
In finding more out about her my father (Al-Haj Abdul Muquith Choudhury), the podcast is also helping to share solutions for heartbreak.
Why launch this podcast?
To learn more about how humans endure when they experience broken hearts and burdens.
To also introduce you to the myriad of stunning characters Yasmin meets in her life as a businesswoman and actress. Here in London as well as in Bangladesh. As well the failures of morally bankrupt, powerful and influential individuals and organisations who make my life so much more challenging. After all - if it was not for them - all the work and projects I create would not exist.

When I used to see sad, depressive, unjust or bad stuff happening I would often speak out. I would then always get a physical or verbal response which was saying "no - you arenot allowed' or 'leave it be as this is the way it is?" or that 'do not ever ask me that again'. Back when I used to be a timid and introverted woman - my internal response used to be 'yasminisyasmin'. Now I just vocalise it louder and stronger each time I challenge the status quo or break the rules.
