Born and raised in Nairobi’s Jericho Estate, Kariuki joined Arsenal in mid-2021, on the heels of Mikel Arteta’s appointment as Arsenal’s manager, as the first-team private chef.

“A girl from the ghetto Jericho living nothing but her dreams. May I reintroduce myself as Arsenal’s first-team private chef,” wrote Bernice on social media at the time following her appointment.

She also managed the daily well-being and nutrition of the team before and after matches, as well as menus for the travelling team.

Bernice’s resume boasts of past stints as a chef for swanky hotels in the United Kingdom, including The Lanesborough, The Dorchester and The Waldorf Hilton in London.

She is an alumnus of Westminster Kingsway College in London, where she studied culinary arts.
