Hi, I am setting up this fundraiser in order to gain some more confidence within myself. I have been fighting the lack of esteem I've been needing since I was only in elementary school. Something as small as the way my teeth look when I smile has made a huge impact on growing up. I'm afraid to do what most are not. I hide myself away. I avoid as much contact with people including family, I don't hangout with my friends, I don't take pictures, and I don't embrace my happiness. I have developed severe social anxiety that I hope will go away. I know that with a beautiful smile my life would change drastically. I would be talking more, meeting new people, and having the fun I've never had. I hope to raise enough for braces or Invisalign before I start my senior year of highschool. Thank you for reading, and thank you to whoever supports my cause. It would mean so much to me.
