Halle Berry was born in Cleveland, Ohio in 1966. When she was younger she was enrolled in a school where she was part of the minority, and this is where she started to realise that people were not just judged based on their personalities, but on what they looked like. The discrimination that she faced only fueled her desire to exceed in life. Halle Berry grew up in an abusive household, where her mother was abused by her father. This impacted her view on men as well as her self-esteem level. Although Halle has been through some traumatizing situations, the world doesn't see her as a women who needs saving, but as one of the most well-known actresses, a famous model, and a charitable person. Aside from that, Halle is the mother of two gorgeous children that help to encourage her in not only her job but in charitable ways as well.
