When she was 13 Pamela joined the Chalice Sponsorship Program along with her little sister. This support was essential for the two of them to be able to continue with their studies and to overcome many obstacles. Despite all the setbacks encountered in her short life, Pamela passed with good grades. She was always outstanding in her studies, culminating as best student, both in primary and in secondary school.
