About

With a huge smile and her signature peace sign, itโ€™s not hard to pick Aimee out of a lineup!

Aimee has autism and used to sit at home and do nothing until she discovered The Cookie Project through her sister. Now as one of The Cookie Projectโ€™s amazing bakers, Aimee loves to bake and her favourite thing in the kitchen is rolling out the special shaped cookies.

Excellent Singer

She is not only great in the kitchen, but she is also an excellent singer.

Encourages others

Since working at The Cookie Project, Aimee has decided she wants to become a baker so that she can help others with disabilities to get employment.
