My name is Sophia Bernard and welcome to Esquire in Love.
My story is simple, I am the girl who always knew she wanted to be a lawyer. Nothing is ever really simple, is it? This is my story. I am a New York born Haitian-American. For about 5 years I lived in Haiti then I grew-up in Philadelphia. As a young child, I was very imaginative and quite sure of myself and how I wanted my life to turn out. I was the girl who wanted it all. I ran track, so I wanted to be the world’s greatest athlete. I competed in pageants and I was into modeling, I wanted to be best at that too. I was argumentative with an itch to always learn, I wanted to be a lawyer. I was told that I could not have it all, but here I am and I believe I found a way to have it all–though not without struggle. You’ll read more about that throughout my post.
I did not become an olympic athlete, but I found a love for fitness and competing that I incorporate into my daily life. I did not become Miss Universe or a top model, but I am able to model on my blog and showcase my Esquire Glam! What I did become is an Attorney. Currently, I am a corporate attorney who maneuvers my way in and out of boardrooms in a stylish pair of heels and fresh coat of lipstick- Esquire Glam. You can be both intelligent and glam.
Along the way, I fell in love with travel. Even more, I fell in love with finding travel deals! There is something to be said about the freedom to roam the world and experience other cultures and monuments. I can never fully explain how it feels to see the world except that I can feel and see that this is all of God’s creation.
