9-year old with brain injury opens coffee shop to employ people with special needs
This is an article from North Carolina about a young boy who created his own coffee shop.
Cam Myers, who is only nine years old, has begun a coffee shop despite the existence of a traumatic brain injury. He has opened a coffee shop and staffed it with people with special needs. H was born with cognitive delays and accompanying nerve damage in his arm that makes simple tasks, like tying shoelaces and holding a pencil, extremely difficult.
But his heart is in the right place - he gives donations to the poor and needy.
It was a win-win from the beginning: the coffee shop gave Cam a sense of fulfillment and his mother a chance to teach him math, goal-setting and social skills.
They would eventually like to move into a bigger space and continue their mission of empowering those with special needs with the use of classroom space and courses.
