Hi everyone! My name is Disha and I am a third-year student at Western University pursuing an Honors Specialization in Computer Science and a Minor in Software Engineering. I have been a part of the Operation Smile Student Chapter at Western for the past two years. Before even stepping foot on Western’s campus in first year, I knew that I wanted to join an organization that focused on giving back to those in need, especially in third world countries. When I found out about Operation Smile during clubs week last year, I immediately knew that this was a team that I want to be a part of. Joining Operation Smile was the best decision I made in first year because it has been an amazing journey thus far. I admire how our efforts ultimately help children receive cleft lip/palate surgeries. Although the way that we are going to fundraise this year will be a little different, we are still dedicated to raise as much as possible. As such, please help me to reach my goal of $240, the price of surgery for one child who is born with cleft lip/palate. Without this surgery, as many as 9 of 10 children born could die. Your donation can help save a life and give a child a future, so help me make a difference today!
