Share Your Smile | “I finally love my smile”
I am posting my smile in hopes that I can encourage and assure others in the cleft community that things do get better. I am Jordan, a 26 year old mental health therapist and I have lived all over the world… I am finally having my last surgery next month. I never used to smile because I hated how I looked. But now I smile because I CAN smile. I smile because I DESERVE to smile. I smile because this is a smile I have worked so hard to have. I hope you can smile too and share your beauty with the world… we are 1 in 700!
I hope to support people with clefts and any resulting mental health issues through my Instagram @you_counselling and also my YouTube channel so don’t hesitate to check it out if you are looking for some support with your self esteem.
