Special cookies from a special girl
Collette, a young woman with Down Syndrome, has been creating her own recipe for cookies for fun! But after rejection over and over again when applying for a job and being told she had great skills but was not "a good fit" she was determined to own her own business, Collette, was and is very determined despite any disability, to show people how able she and many other's like herself are. Collette is creating a global movement and is known by many throughout the world. Her response to all this new unintentional fame is, "why are people so surprised". She speaks to audiences of hundreds to thousands across the country and has decided she needs to use her platform to create change and to help the non disabled population see abilities and start including people with disabilities more and more. It pains Collette to know 82% of people with a disability that are capable of work cannot find jobs....she knows that firsthand. Her mission is to open production facilities across the country and employ thousands of (dis) abled people!
