Don't Fix Me, Love Me: #30layers30days Day 6

It all started with Tyra Banks. She was in an ad for Covergirl with a dazzling, bright, straight smile. My crooked smile is a result of my mom keeping me on the bottle too long.

A slight gap, crooked bottom row, 2 missing in the back from an elementary school fight, 1 missing on the bottom left from getting it pulled.

No adequate dental insurance, so I couldn't afford braces. I perfected the "lips over teeth smile".

"You should smile more." So I did. I've accepted my crooked smile. It's one of my most complimented features.

Big, bright, crooked, mine.
