Bernardita, also known as Berni, was born on October 11th of 2002 in Santiago de Chile. She  lived all her childhood in Melipilla in the countryside  until 2013 when she moved to Santiago.  There she attended “San Francisco de Asís School'', an institution from which she graduated back in 2020. Now she is studying Service Management, a career that she loves because of her interest in the customer experience, and her attention to detail .

Berni has been catholic since she was a little baby. Her parents and school educated her with this line of values and training .  In their teens, she became involved in the religion on her own will, participating in the Schoenstatt movement  and social projects to serve the community. She thinks that the world needs "Saints in Jeans and Sneakers' ' as John Paul II said.

Also, Berni is a big dreamer. Her biggest desire is peace. This peace is reached with three main concepts that Pope Francis said: dialogue, forgiveness and reconciliation. This is a big dream, but if you want this to happen you have to start at one point.

Her hobbies include: drawing, photography, learning about culture, listening to music, movie criticism and others.
