An Australian woman who was born with Down Syndrome and a mild form of autism, has built a business based on her low level of reading comprehension. It turned out that Emma Lynam is the perfect person to trust with destroying your sensitive documents.
Her mother, Jo Lynam, was worried Emma would never find a job—until she discovered her daughter’s love of using paper shredders.
Jo said she wanted Emma to be like any other 21-year-old, to “stand on her own two feet and earn her own living.” So, she began recruiting clients who routinely need documents and records destroyed to protect client privacy.
Now, Emma is doing better than most 21-year-olds, running her own business with repeat regular customers that include a credit union and a law firm.
