I am so excited to spend my fourth year with Operation Smile- Queens Chapter as a Co-Chair ! I got involved with Operation Smile because I saw the impact that having access to a safe and free cleft surgery had on my mom’s life and wanted to help every child have the same. Since then, I have had the opportunity to become immersed in the great work that the student communities do to support this wonderful organization. Throughout the past 4 years, I realized that Operation Smile is not only about repairing cleft lip and palate. This organization is committed to comprehensive care for the overall well-being of children born with cleft conditions. This commitment to excellence for children around the world, is what makes this organization one that I love and support wholeheartedly.
