Pamela was a typical obedient Filipino, destined to be a licensed registered nurse. But then life took a detour and opened up to the exciting world of entertainment as a production dancer/magician's assistant. Although she was told, 'You're too old, too Asian, and too short' she is catapulted into a long and fulfilling career as a dancer on a cruise line for a decade. Pamela grew up with secrets and lies. A poor little rich girl in a 3rd world country. Her father took the Najera family and immigrated to America. Then a chance for a lifetime adventure comes barging through the door. Pamela, seemingly suddenly, is performing with well renowned magicians traveling the world and making numerous appearances at the Magic Castle. Pamela then continues on as a cruise ship dancer/entertainer touring the waters from the Atlantic to the Pacific Ocean; through the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean Sea.
Join Pamela, as she takes you through her journey of transformation despite the comical limitations she was born in to.

"Pamela is adorable and her energy and kindness radiates from her - and it is infectious. She tackles darker subjects in a way that doesn't overburden her audience and always has a hint of triumph in it. I left feeling uplifted, inspired and just plain happy to know that people like her follow their dreams no matter the odds."

"Pam is a very talented dancer and charming storyteller. She tells her story with wit and passion. I enjoyed being swept up in her journey. Pam shines onstage! She’s an absolute natural and such a beautiful dancer! I loved the old videos and pictures. I loved Pam’s use of the stage, costume changes, and physicality."

"Pamela is oh so talented and endearing in her solo show recounting the journey she took achieving what she had been told was an impossible dream. We are left entertained and rooting for her all the way. Her smile and enthusiasm are infectious and her dance moves (and yes... LOTS of dancing!😁) are guaranteed to stir up the music in your heart. The video presentations and photos are well placed, giving us a real look into the dance life she carved out for herself. Loved the honesty as well as the secrets she chose to share. So nice to hear her speak up about the things that otherwise fester as shame... stories, I, for one, can relate to."
