My name is Gabriele Atte and I am a grade 12 student at Maple Ridge Christian School. In my spare time, I enjoy working out and hanging out with my friends. I also enjoy sports such as soccer, basketball, and ultimate frisbee. I first learned about Operation Smile from my older brother. He taught me what these children go through and how simple the surgeries were. I was immediately hooked. Once I Researched more about the charity, I created a club at my school, along with two of my friends. We are going to do a 15k run in the hopes of raising enough money for ten children to get surgeries.
