A LAVINGTON teenager with an intellectual disability has branched out into business.
Shania Bryant, 19, launched Nia May's Bickies in Albury this month.
Shania's mum Tammy Bryant said her daughter loved baking, making it the ideal choice for a microbusiness.
"I have been baking my whole life and all of my children learnt to bake at home," she said.
The microbusiness is an offshoot of Purple Chicken, a social enterprise designed to find meaningful employment for young adults with a disability.
Founder Jen Tait said the microbusinesses tapped into young people's strengths.
Nia May's Bickies sold 45 packets while Ally's Doggo Treats sold 50 at a launch this month.
Purple Chicken has a range of Christmas cards too.
The money raised from the ideas will be streamed into a fund to support the ideas of young adults at Purple Chicken who have ideas for microbusinesses of their own.
