I am a 19-year-old college student in need of fixing my upper and lower front teeth. My teeth have been the source of misery for me ever since I was a kid but my family has no money to pay for fixing my teeth.
On a regular basis since I was a small girl, everyone has been on on commenting my teeth and smile. I was bullied for this obviously stupid reason for years and my self-esteem is in the rock bottom. Even though the bullying has stopped in college the trauma is there and I don’t dare to smile at all as I am afraid of even small remarks of my appearance. Even when people don’t say anything I can see their eyes constantly staring at my teeth when talking with them. It makes me very uncomfortable.
I have been dreaming of having at least straight teeth (even if otherwise still imperfect) and I have tried to save money for the straightening operation for a couple of years now. I have talked about this with my parents a lot but I do not want to bother them since they have already helped me and my siblings with our tuitions so much.
I do work part time but most of that money goes to rent and tuition. The cost of this operation is estimated to be around $6000 and I have managed to get together around $1000.
I would appreciate it very much if you could help me fund my dental care if even a bit and I can reach my goal faster. I wish to be able to smile and laugh more in public instead of restraining my real bubbly personality and hiding my mouth sometimes even when just talking.
I know that having straight teeth won’t make my self-esteem rise miraculously overnight. I don’t want or expect to be beautiful after but it is one solid step for me to work on myself and be able to get to the point that I can say I truly love myself.
All I can say at this point is thank you if you even have gotten this far in this text and thank you so much more if you decide to do an act of kindness and donate even a small amount.
