Motivated by a series of personal life altering experiences, Bernadine’s transparency allows audiences from diverse backgrounds to relate to her. Embracing intersectionality, Bernadine presents passionately from the lends of a confident, first-generation Caribbean woman, who is a survivor of sexual assault, raised in an urban community and by a single mother of three.

As a keynote/motivational speaker, I speak directly to my audience and meet them exactly where they are.

While ensuring a safe space to foster growth and development, as a diverse workshop facilitator, I am unafraid to push workshop attendees into uncomfortable spaces to engage in raw dialogue.

Poetically, I express feelings, thoughts, desires, and experiences in a way that moves one to reflect on their personal narrative as a spoken word artist.

Seeking to always live by my own mantra, I un-apologetically speak my truth as a blogger, with hopes to inspire readers to do the same.

“In all that you do, never forget the power that exists from standing in your truths.”

Know Your Truths. Speak Your Truths.™

When she’s not in the world speaking…

Bernadine can be found socializing in various cities, at an R&B concert, watching a movie, traveling and embracing the simplicities of life with loved ones while being silly and tapping into her inner childlike-playful self or rocking the mic as the First Lady of “The Urban Collective Show” which is a Boston based podcast.
