My name is Taylor, and I am in grade 12 at Maple Ridge Christian School. I fill my time by practicing the guitar, the piano, or sketching. Last year, my social studies teacher was talking about children with cleft palate. At that time, I had no idea what that even was, but I was very intrigued and decided that when I was older, I wanted to go on a trip to perform operations on these kids myself. This year, one of my friends asked if I wanted to be a part of Operation Smile. He explained we would fundraise for children to get the operation done to heal their lip. Of course, I said yes, and I am thrilled to be a part of this organization.
