Berry was educated at Bedford High School, in which she was a cheerleader, honor student, crowned prom queen as well as editor of the school newspaper. She was unhappy with her condition of having biracial background as her father was Afro-American while her mother was white. Therefore, she decided to identify herself as a black woman because she thinks her appearance would be perceived as so.
