Inspiring! Down's Syndrome man becomes the youngest business owner in his hometown after turning passion into full-time job (photos)


A 20-year-old man with Down's Syndrome has shunned stereotypical views of his condition to become the youngest business owner in his hometown.


When Blake Pyron was born, his family were told there was a slim chance of him enjoying a normal, happy life and only a chance of him being able to walk and talk.

But 20 years later, Blake is defying the pessimistic medical outlook and thriving in the world of business.

Blake has turned his love of snow cones into his very own company, and earlier this week opened 'Blake's Snow Shack'.

Speaking about doctors' attitude towards Blake's condition at birth, mum Mary Ann said: "When he was born, in the hospital they said, 'he might be able to walk, he might be able to talk.

But it's not just the business world Blake has conquered, as the medical-defying 20 year old also captains a local football team.


His mum added: "He has exceeded in everything, he's a football captain, he was a former prom king and now he's a business owner."
