Exploring the stories of those who's cut from a different cloth.
Self-titled as the Celtic Arab, Bernadette is the bubbly personality that has skyrocketed on social media for her funny videos exploring the intricacies of her cultures. Half Irish and half Palestinian, the born and raised Aussie uses her online platforms to connect with her community and grow her appreciation and understanding for all she missed out on when she was younger. As people from around the world sought out her videos, Bernadette was encouraged to dig deeper into her identity, learn more about who she was, and educate others along the way.
"It's nice growing up and not being heard, and now having someone who wants to listen."
Open any of Bernadette's videos, and you'll likely hear her booming voice transition between three different accents, each reflecting the cultures she's grown immensely proud of. Some videos even offer appearances from her grandparents, as she reenacts memorable moments of family life and brings the innocent humour that many have come to love.
