Born into poverty and raised by an illiterate mother Pamela George, a first-generation Canadian, now counsels numerous influential Canadian women, about the power of financial literacy counselling.
Originally from Trinidad and Tobago, Pamela spent the first 25 years of her life struggling and living in poverty. She was subjected to bullying, humiliation, and abuse, all because she was poor.
