In 2007, Bernice Robertson was turning 89 and her granddaughter, Nina (a lifelong friend of mine), thought it was the perfect time to capture her life story. Bernice is a breast cancer survivor, widow, and as you will see in this clip, she has more energy than many people half her age.
My all-time favorite moment from any project EVER was watching Bernice break open the piñata at her 89th birthday party with her whole extended family cheering her on. Bernice is still going strong today at 96! It was a privilege to get to hear her stories and be a part of sharing them with her extended family.
