Cardi B was born Belcalis Almanzar on October 11, 1992 in Bronx to a Trinidadian mother and a Dominican father. Raised alongside her sister Hannessey Carolina, Cardi learned how to be self-dependent in life since she was a teenager as her cashier mother and cabbie father barely could make ends meet. She had a bold, headstrong nature after her parents' split and due to her strained relationship with her stepfather.
Cardi attended Renaissance high School for Musical Theater & Technology. Once she finished high school, she enrolled at Borough of Manhattan Community College. As a teenager, she worked as a marketing expert at Amish Market and later pursued full-time career in the field. During this time, she turned to stripping, calling it an escape from poverty and domestic violence in her relationship with her then boyfriend.
