Since winning the entrepreneurs with disabilities contest “Just Watch Me,” good things have been happening for Taylor Layton.

Layton and her mom just returned from Toronto where she was the guest speaker at the annual Lia Sophia gathering.

Her story is an inspirational one. Down syndrome kept Layton from securing a job in her community of Outlook, Sask. so she started her own recycling business.

Layton captured the attention of Flaman Trailers in Saskatoon which donated a wagon to assist with her business.

She also caught the eye of Lia Sophia jewelry.

The company’s managing director, Marcia Cote, flew to Saskatoon to shower Layton with gifts, before inviting her to Toronto to speak at the summer gala.

This was Layton’s first flight and she was treated like a celebrity.

The company dressed her up complete with a tiara and crowds lined up after her speech for an autograph.
