Bernadette is from Chicago, Illinois, and was living in the city’s western suburbs at the time of her interview. Her days were spent “advising college students, to build motivation in them, and to try to push them towards something greater in their lives.”

Bernadette’s Most Likely To Is: "Most Likely To Be On a Mission to Save Money"

We began talking about the difference between the way she sees Chicago, and the way the city has been portrayed by some in the news media.

Bernadette described her journey of personal growth over the past few years, including the joy of never paying the full price for things. She explained how the life goals and priorities of her close friends have also evolved along with her own over the past few years.

She discussed some of her disappointments with much of the national discourse about the social issues in our country, and shared her thoughts about what she would like to see in our public and private conversations.
