Tatianna Bernard is 10 years old. She is a cancer survivor. While undergoing treatment, she created, developed, and designed the short film “Tati’s Fashion Show” with director Amir Arison because she loves acting, dancing, and modeling. She has a true eye and passion for fashion. She cast her friends Miah, Summer, and her older sister NyNy to collaborate and co-star in her short film. Her favorite actress is Raven Symone, her favorite movies are Black Panther as well as Madea Halloween, and her favorite colors are purple and pink. She loves playing Connect 4, Uno, Barbie, making slime, riding her bike outside, creating TikTok videos, and hanging out with her sisters NyNy, Ming, and Mikayla. She is competitive, funny, and loves to play tricks on her friends and family. Over the course of the film, we see her grow from being a withdrawn young girl, to a funny, opinionated, creative, and outspoken pre-teen. She has a deep connection to her mother Shevorn, a special bond that is the backbone of this film.



Shevorn turned 40 during the making of our film. She is a single mother to 4 daughters: Mikayla (16), Nyilia (14), Ming (6), and Tatianna Bernard (10) who is undergoing treatment for a brain tumor. Born in Saint Vincent, Shevorn moved to Brooklyn, New York when she herself was 10 years old. She has worked as a secretary for a newspaper home delivery service as well as in the medical field. She is the central figure in a family with 9 brothers and sisters, as well as many nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends who frequently visit Shevorn and her girls. She is an optimist, wise beyond her years, a survivor, and above all, a dedicated mother. She is the matriarch in a house and community full of love.

There is more than one hero in this film. It is about the power to heal, but also about the power of motherhood, family and faith.
