THE STORY:

Pamela's vision for the world? "A world where youth, and those who come from the foster care community, know that they are loved and know that they matter."

Pamela is an inspirational speaker, author and life coach filled with tenacity, hope, and divine spirit. She is passionate about supporting children and adults from the foster care community, and helping them heal. Pamela who was born in the Ivory Coast and brought to the US at the age of two openly shares her experience of surviving a decade of emotional and physical abuse at the hands of her father. At the age of sixteen, she finally escaped this life of torment, and placed herself into the foster care system. She credits this decision with saving her life. She shares her story in the hopes that it will inspire and impact everyone who suffered the way she did. Pamela is candid about the details of her abuse, and how it affected her life. She has a B.A. in Criminal Justice and has been advocating on behalf of youth in foster care for the past ten years.

Pamela’s grandmother is still alive and is 89 years old. She lives in Benin (West Africa). Due to declining health she wears a pace maker. Her grandmother hasn't seen her since that day they said their goodbyes (before her father bought her to the States). They currently have a relationship via the phone. She was able to Skype with her last year while she was in Paris seeking medical treatment. The experience was priceless. Being able to Skype with her allowed them to see each other for the first time in thirty-two years, but it isn't the same as being able to see her in person.

She is hoping to visit her at the end of the year and needs support towards her plane ticket. Let’s help reunite this beautiful family!
