Early life and career beginnings

Bernice Burgos comes from The Bronx, New York City. She had a difficult childhood and adolescence. In an interview for Breakfast Club, she shared her experience with getting pregnant at 15 and how that forced her to grow up almost instantaneously to be able to take care of her baby daughter.[2]

“I’m over here, being pregnant at the age of 15. If you think I look young now, when I was 15, I looked like I was 7. So people were like, ‘Oh my God, a baby having a baby.’ I was 15, but I gotta act like I’m 30,” Bernice shared her struggles in the interview.

Bernice had to also drop out of high school to take care of her baby. The baby's father was out of the picture because he was in and out of jail, explained Bernice.

Instead of getting the support she needed as a teen mom, her grandmother kicked her out of the house, and she went to live with her boyfriend’s mother. She didn’t pay rent, but had to do chores in the house to be able to live there.[3]
