Bernice's Story


Growing up on a serene farm just outside of Toronto laid the foundation for my life's journey. As the years unfolded, I found myself at a crossroads when I turned 18. The allure of the bustling big city beckoned, and giving in to my sense of adventure, I decided to make it my new home.

Embracing the city life, I ventured into the world of modelling. It was more than just a career choice; it became a method for me to express a unique sense of confidence and style. The vibrant cityscape served as the backdrop to my journey, and my daily ritual of dressing up became a manifestation of the energy and spirit that defined those years.

Fast forward to the present, and I now find myself in the heart of a retirement community, a place that offers a different kind of charm and fulfilment. The transition from the dynamic pace of the city to the tranquillity of my retirement community has been a unique chapter in my life. Yet, as I reflect on the journey, I feel a sense of pride in the life I've lived.

In this new phase, I continue to bring that flair for dressing up into each day. It's not just a habit; it's a connection to my younger self, a reminder of the confidence and style that has always been a part of who I am. The echoes of my past, from the farm to the city lights, are interwoven into the fabric of my present.

If my younger self could see where I am now, living in this retirement community, I am confident that she would be immensely proud. The journey has been a tapestry of experiences, and each chapter, from the rural simplicity of my childhood to the glamour of the modelling world, has contributed to the person I am today. Living here is not just a change of scenery; it's a culmination of a life well-lived, a testament to the rich and diverse chapters that have shaped my story. Here, I'm free to be me.
