Hi, my name is Rebecca and I am excited to be a part of the student section of CLEFT this year. I am looking forward to raising awareness and fundraising for CLEFT with the student ambassador team! I realise the importance of carrying out corrective surgery early on in life, to restore form and function, in order to improve quality of life. I believe this opportunity should be available to all children born with a cleft lip and/or palate. Being a part of a charity alongside a career is important to me, and it will help me be a better surgeon, benefiting myself and my patients.
