teeth or a particularly bad bite.
Jade was one of 30 nationwide

So she was stoked.''
The braces went on last month
and Jade is excited to have a

definitely wasn't a possibility for
my family to think of braces as an
option without this opportunity.''
The 18-year-old says she was

her pearly whites.
She wants other teens to know
about the trust because severe den-

Some people have really low self
esteem due to it, so being aware
that this is available is the most

Applications are assessed by the
trust's national selection com-
