"I was never allowed to eat with my family"
"Before I was operated, people used to stare at me and I had trouble concentrating at school. I knew that I was different. At home, I was never allowed to eat with the rest of my family, I don't know why. My mother was the only one who ate with me. She brought me to the hospital even though dad didn’t want her to. I was afraid, but I really wanted to have my lip done."
