My name is Anna Zine and I am the creator of this site. On January 16th, 1995, I was born with a cleft lip. Growing up with a cleft lip was really difficult for me. Using my struggle as a strength, I created the Cleft Cafe-- a place where other teens with cleft lip/palate can come for support, advice, inspiration, and even just a little chatting and laughing. Come on in to the cafe! Take care!
