A woman encouraged to bring “her whole self” to work has since been sacked, sources claim.

Emma Bernard, 27, had seemed quiet and reserved when starting her office job four months ago. Naturally, her new team noticed and decided to step in.

“I did warn them.” Bernard said. “I was holding it all back for a reason.”

What’s next for Bernard? “I might just drown myself in the bathtub”, she said.
