​"I probably met Bern a handful of times when we both were babies because her dad is my mom’s bother. But the day I do remembering meeting Bern for the first time was at a holiday family gathering up in the Bay. We probably were about 7 – 8 years old. We all were at my aunt’s house and all the cousins were sitting on this long sofa in the living room. A few seats down, Bern caught my eye in her yellow, fluffy dress and in that moment I knew I would love her. We've been close ever since." - Jenn

​bern and i met involuntarily at my 7th birthday party. i knew her brother matt from school and had invited him to my birthday party. for those who may not know, i'm half white/half filipino, but i absolutely was not raised in a filipino household. i mean, i barely even ate rice growing up, just to give you an idea of how un-filipino i was. so with that in mind, i expected matt's parents to drop him off at my party and pick him up a few hours later when it was over, just like all my other friends. but in filipino culture these invitations are extended to the whole family. so much to my surprise in addition to my friend matt, there was also his two sisters bernadette and melinda, along with both of their parents. i will keep the image of bern and inda in their matching filipino dresses with pouffy sleeves, close to my heart forever. i'm sure if i searched my parents' house, i could find an old photo as proof (or blackmail) 😊

"So I don't have an exact story of how we met, although I remember seeing you in the house sometimes hanging out with Drea, Meejit, & Chels lol. Later on as we got a bit older and I started sneaking into the clubs with Drea's ID I started to see you more often during our Thursday night routine at D&B's then Deep after. All the drinking and partying in our early days definitely brought us together and eventually we got really close to where we're at now!" - Stroe
