Emma may have Down syndrome, autism and a cleft palette, but this video proves that hasn't kept her from starting a business as a paper shredder for businesses.

Her mother, Jo, was so determined to help her daughter find independence that the two of them brain stormed ideas on what work she could do that make everyone happy. Emma loved shredding paper and the rest is almost history.

Receiving employment was only the first step in branching out to shredding paper for multiple businesses. And with a name like Master Shredder, which does indeed come from the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' archenemy, how can she lose?

Well done, Master Shredder!
