About



Hello, I'm Karla Bernardo. I'm an intellectual property lawyer, currently taking my LL.M. (Master of Laws) at the University of New Hampshire Franklin Pierce School of Law. 

I spent eight-and-a-half years of my life at the University of the Philippines, where I graduated with degrees in Juris Doctor and Creative Writing. It is also where I learned how to speak a bit of Italian, got a taste of the best tapsilog, and took striptease for PE.

I love telling stories, as much as I enjoy finding them.
