Rockland Resident is the Face of Lay’s Chips

Published

on

SPRING VALLEY, NY – Jean Paul Laurent, a Spring Valley resident and founder of Unspoken Smiles, a nonprofit promoting oral hygiene is featured smiling on a variety of Lay’s flavored bags.

The new bags are part of a campaign to promote Operation Smile, a nonprofit that provides surgeries for people with cleft lips or palates. Laurent was chosen to be featured on the bag because he founded Unspoken Smiles, a nonprofit promoting oral hygiene, especially among children. He has helped more than 7,000 children worldwide achieve and maintain their oral health, The Haitian Times reported.

In 2004, Laurent immigrated to the U.S. and settled in Rockland County, New York, before moving to Spring Valley. Before becoming the self-proclaimed Mayor of Smiles, the then 21-year-old was working at Target with limited English-speaking skills.“[Sixteen] years ago[,] I landed in this beautiful [sic] with just a suit case and a dream to excel, he said on LinkedIn. “A month later, I got my first job at Target with barely enough English to ring items as a cashier. Fast forward today, I’m at the very same store in west Nyack buying potato chips with my smile in them.”

He studied his way from Rockland Community College to New York University’s College of Dentistry, according to his LinkedIn profile. Laurent then obtained an Executive MPA from Columbia University.

In 2014, his organization got recognition by the United Nations and Clinton Foundation. Laurent got a role as a UN special consultant, providing requested advice and written statements on social and economic conditions in various countries, The Hatitain Times reported.
