America's Tooth Fairy: National Children's Oral Health Foundation
Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians
Kristina’s dream is to be a Native American “tooth fairy,” by visiting nearly 20 schools and after school programs serving Native American children in North Carolina and Oklahoma. Her program will teach kids how to properly take care of their teeth and give them the tools to do it.
"There are several programs that exist, but they do not focus primarily on Native Americans and problems specific to Native American communities and cultures.... One of my goals is to appear as the Native American ToothFairy, wearing traditional Cherokee clothing, to gain children’s trust and interest." -Kristina
