The life of Pamela M Covington took an unforeseen turn and she found herself deep in poverty struggling to work her way out. She documented her story in the book, “A Day at the Fare: One Woman’s Welfare Passage,” describing her unexpected plunge into (and triumphant emergence from) a life below poverty level. These days she’s on a mission to empower others, speaking to people about motivation, self-esteem, welfare independence, literacy, education, and more. In this podcast we explore the misconceptions of how people enter into poverty, the systemic difficulties with getting out and her ideas on how to make the world a little bit better for everyone!
