Spoons can be savoured and coffee cups crunched.

Now, a woman with Down’s Syndrome and her startup are making life for Americans and Canadians that much sweeter.

After struggling to find a job, the 33-year-old decided to go freelance, developing a unique cinnamon-chocolate-chip cookie and making the national news in the process.

To date, she has sold more than 400,000 cookies. In the meantime there are other flavours, and she travels up and down the country telling her story.

Her aim is to spur companies into changing their thinking, and encourage people to think about what they can do – not what they can’t. These days she employs 15 people, some with disabilities, herself.

This is “putting” it right, too.
