“She is the most famous unknown person in the world.” Says friend and confident - Sean Penn
She is an artist - writer, poet, she draws and paints, with no chance to shine yet.
Her activism is deeply rooted in her and we know very little of how hard she works every day to save animals, the planet, vulnerable people, refugees, and victims of sexual violence. Domestic violence and human trafficking.
And she has also been helpful to first responders during natural disasters all over the world. One of the first to appear in Haiti after the earthquake and has visited since to help where she can.
She goes with the flow, is madly in love with french footballer Adil Rami (who has been on whirlwind celebration tour after winning the World Cup) they share a home together in Marseille with their dog ZuZu.
Together they face the world and are on a beautiful adventure.
They are very close and support all her unorthodox choices. Her joi de vivre is contagious. The optimist. They follow in her footsteps living life to the fullest. With compassion, fun and without fear.
Her parents have rarely left their small town of Ladysmith BC where Pamela was born. They have been to LA to be with their grandkids. But excited that they may come to the show and sit front row.
Pamela is excited for them to experience France. They have never been to Paris. Her father recently had a stroke but has made full recovery and is healthy enough to travel.
Don’t be surprised if Brandon and Dylan come too. And of course the Rami family love the show and were big influencers in getting her to accept.
‘It’s going to be fun. But I am so nervous, my body and my mind needs this- I’m sure there will be tears ... “
“Merci for your support and I hope to surprise people and also make them laugh. . “
Another wild adventure to add to the list.
