Pamela Krueger - Marketing Manager
As Pamela “discovered” Raja4Divers while doing an internship, she found the perfect working place, where she could walk barefooted to work.
As a daughter of a Filipina and a German father, Pamela has her roots in Berlin, Germany. Her mother insisted to learn her culture and tradition too, so she went to college for 18 months in Leyte – a division that belongs to the Visayas archipelago south from Manila. Very soon it was clear that her passion for Southeast Asia will hold on for a much longer time.
As she went back to finish her studies in History and Arts of Asia, she made her living with working part-time at Starbucks. First as barista and later as a Shift Supervisor, she learned a lot in the operational field of hospitality as well as making the perfect coffee.As discovering and deepening knowledge about different cultures and arts belong to her passions, trainees at a NGO in Singapore as well as working in the Marketing Department for the Indonesian Tourism Government gave her “a taste” of Asia`s lifestyle. While doing her masters in Berlin, she interviewed the Indonesian Ambassador in Berlin who told her that Raja Ampat is the most beautiful place on earth. Since then, Pam knew where she wanted to go someday.
But before returning to Asia, Pam worked for 12 months in the Marketing Department for the Berlin State Opera where she promoted opera classics like “The Magic Flute”, “The Barber of Seville” and “Madama Butterfly”.
With a master in Cultural Management and Cultural Tourism, she found her way to work in Sales for Asian Arts Department for an Online Auction House at first and later she moved to a traditional Porcelain Manufactory where she was in charge especially for the chinese clients. All these experiences were always related to Asia and as she decided not to spend her lifetime behind the office desk, it was time for her to travel around Southeast Asia, where she “coincidentally found” Pulau Pef and its warm-hearted Pef-family.
In her free time, Pam tries not to miss an event as she takes pictures of all curiosities that pass her eyes.
Pam speaks German, English a little bit Tagalog (Filipino), a little bit Korean, a little bit French and is still catching up with Bahasa Indonesia.
