A kindred heart, born to the Esezobor family, Bernadette laid her educational foundation in Nigeria and then proceeded to United Kingdom, where she decided to further her knowledge and went on to acquire respected degree in Business.

Bernadette’s parents are from Esan, Edo State and it’s also the place where her faith in Christianity was cultivated, as she mentioned her mum was a practising Catholic.  Bernadette travelled to the UK in pursuit for further education, but her travelling didn’t end there. She proudly discussed a number of places she’s been privileged to visit “I’ve visited Paris, Dubai, the United States of America as well as living here in the UK with my lovely husband and wonderful children. I tend to oversee my business here, being a fashion designer and an accredited counsellor and a health Coach, the nature of the work bodes well with my current lifestyle, so I couldn’t be happier.”

She  has interest in helping charitable homes with donations to enable them with the necessary skills/ tools needed to take care of deprived and less privileged elderly. She championed the creation of the Day Care Centre for the elderly by the United Sisters International.
