Funmilayo Olufa is courage personified. Against all odds she fought and one in the Project Smile Makeover Competition.
Funmilayo Olufa is a picture of courage and Hope even though she might look anything like it especially judging from her cover picture. Life dealt her a heavy blow, but it didn’t completely take her out, it did shake her but it didn’t break this lady who is still full of love, life and laughter.
In summary, Funmilayo had a fatal auto crash in May 2006 where she lost most of her front teeth which also disfigured her gum – this dramatically changed her facial appearance thus she lost her self confidence. She reluctantly gave the competition a try and to the delight of all, she won and in tears thanked the organisers and all who voted for her.
This keenly contested annual dental makeover project was founded by Dr. Amy Traore- the Head Consultant of Smile 360 Dental Specialists. This event is still ongoing and everyone has a chance.
