So, for those of you who don’t know me, or don’t know what is going on in the first picture.. I was born with a birth defect, a cleft lip and palate. Throughout my life, I’ve had multiple surgeries to fix my birth defect and in October of 2013, I got surgery that reconstructed my nose. My surgeon performed a rhinoplasty, he narrowed the bridge of my nose as well as defined the ball of it. January 21, 2014. I got my teeth fixed. Well, they put my temporary veneers on, but for them being temporary they look good, way better than they did before. As you can probably tell in the pictures above, my life has been a process, a very long one, 17 years. 17 years and I finally feel like I look how I’m supposed to look. I feel like I look normal. Before, looking in the mirror was a challenge.. I would constantly cringe and cry. But now, I can see a side of myself that I never saw. I actually feel somewhat pretty sometimes and it’s so new to me but it’s actually the best feeling in the world to finally be able to look in the mirror and think “I made it.” And not have to cry.
