My name is Rebecca, but most people call me Becca. I was born with a bilateral cleft-lip and palate. I am now 25 years old and one day I plan to have my own foundation. I want it to help children with clefts but also teens and adults; whether it be financially, emotionally, or for scholarship purposes.
For a long time I thought about what I might call my foundation and then one day it hit me. When my cousin Kyla was just a little baby, she would put her hands to her face and say “Love this face” while moving her head side to side. She was adorable but this made her irresistible. Then I thought, that makes sense, “love this face”, because of course I want you to love my cleft as much as you love me as does anyone with a cleft or knows someone with a cleft.
That being said, this is my first blog from “lovethisface.org” because one day it WILL be a foundation but until then, it will have my thoughts, fears, motivations for anything even remotely related to clefts and my journey in life.
I hope you will join me in reading along, dropping comments when you see fit, and sharing with anyone who you think might be interested.
