Prepared and knowledgeable, she asks a lot of questions and follows the interviewees’ answers and the evidence for a deeper exploration of the issues. Pamela is naturally open-minded and curious, so she loves canvassing and assessing evidence as well as meeting diverse people and hearing their stories.
