With a stance that children must be protected at the least costs, Penny touched on a story she was told by someone who revealed that he’s never dated anyone who has never been sexually assaulted. “If not as a toddler, it had been high school or university. It hurts me further. Healing is required,” she revealed.
We must protect our children at all costs.

While she strives, by all means, to guard her loved ones against the general public eye, in August last year Penny opened about finally finding her voice and showing the planet her true self.
The outspoken radio personality told True Love she made a conscious effort to suppress her truth but sometimes couldn’t bring herself to overlook certain things.
She said her time as host one.TV’s Sunrise helped build her confidence and obtain the opinions of others.
“I had to urge over my very own fear of the opinions people held about me. I had closed up, so I had to find out to trust my voice again and not think ‘If I speak my mind this person’s getting to reject me and that I won’t get the job’.”
She also opened on Twitter about the challenges of the show business and vowed to not shut one’s mouth or attempt to impress people.
“I’ve buried too many of us to stay quiet and, personally, I spent 10 days during a psychiatric ward due to the show business BS, especially #BlackRadio to suck my thumb [and] bury my head.”
