Samantha Johnston Power Of A Smile

Sam HeaderSamantha Johnston, Manager, Corporate Partnerships talks about what the Power Of A Smile means to her.

What first inspired you to work at Smile Train?
I loved how focused the organization is. I was impressed about Smile Train’s laser-focus of solving a single problem in the most effective way possible. Also, the fact that they leveraged technology to continually improve day-to-day operations was important to me; it allows me to go to work knowing we will accomplish as much as possible every single day.

How has your involvement with Smile Train made you look at the power a smile differently?
It’s easy to forget that a smile is so much more than a physical feature. To the children Smile Train helps, a smile is a second chance at life. It’s the opportunity to go to school, have friends, and get a job. It’s the opportunity to have dreams that they may never have had without Smile Train.

What keeps you involved in Smile Train?
Knowing we bring happiness to children, families and communities around the world every day keeps me going. Smile Train has achieved some great smilestones in such a short time, but there’s still more work to be done. I want to be sure I do everything in my power to help Smile Train reach as many children as possible.

  1. My elder sister was born with a cleft palate in 1936.
    She died on the operating table when she was 4, because it was war time and the doctor was not experienced enough to carry out the operation successfully. Things are much better now and it is good for children to get the treatment they deserve to live normal healthy lives.
