I will gladly speak on behalf of Pankhuri.
I remember when I first met Pankhuri, she had just joined the WT and was one of my first mentees. Consequently, I think we were both pretty nervous about what to do at the start. However, as we emailed each other more often and got to know each other, I came to realise that I had gotten really lucky on the mentee stakes and she would be a real asset to the WT (and Red Ajah (I'm still so chuffed you chose us, btw! ).
The members of our Ajah are often associated with being very out-spoken. However, there are many other qualities that, to me, define a true Red and Aes Sedai such as loyalty to a cause or a group, independence, determination and, perhaps most importantly, an open mind. From what I have learnt about Pankhuri over the last few months, she possesses all these traits in abundance.
She is one of the most genuinely lovely people I have ever met and I feel that she will make a fantastic Aes Sedai.
