Meet Collette: a talented young baker from the Boston area, who has been working on her own original cookie recipes since 2011. She is also a young woman with Down Syndrome.
Despite her passion for cookies and her talent with baking, she was unable to find a job.
"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," reads her website.
Fueled with ambition, Collette opened a production facility in Boston, where she creates and bakes all her own cookies. Within the first 10 days, over 50,000 cookies were ordered.
