Collette Divitto, 30, who was born with Down syndrome, studied hard and completed the Clemson University’s LIFE program a year early. Soon after, she decided to leave her family home in Ridgefield, CT, and move to Boston to live on her own. ⁠

That’s when her dreams were met with disappointment - Collette was rejected at all job interviews she attended. But that minor setback couldnt stop her. She became even more resolved to pursue her dreams. ⁠
+⁠
After no one would hire her, Collette turned her baking hobby into a booming business named Collettey’s. Now her customers can purchase Collettey’s cookies at locations in Massachusetts, California, and Connecticut, and also online.⁠

“My favorite part of my company is creating more jobs for people with all types of disabilities,” Collette said. “…Do not let people bring you down and do not give up on your careers and dreams because when one door closes, another door opens.”⁠

Congratulations 🇺🇸🙏🏽🙏🏾🙏

Well, when I was 4, my dad bought a trusty XBox. you know, the first, raggedy, blocky one from 2001. We had tons and tons and tons of fun playing all kinds of games together - until he died when I was just 6.
+
I couldnt touch that console for 10 years. But once I did, I noticed something. We used to play a racing game, Rally Sports Challenge. actually pretty awesome for the time it came. And once I started meddling around... I found a GHOST.
+
Literally.
+
You know, when a time race happens, that the fastest lap so far gets recorded as a ghost driver? Yep, you guessed it - his ghost still rolls around the track today.
+
And so I played and played, and played until I was almost able to beat the ghost. Until one day I got ahead of it, I surpassed it, and... I stopped right in front of the finish line, just to ensure I wouldnt delete it.
+
Bliss.
