“With an infectious smile, Leisel Shepherd will tell you her main loves in life include her mum, make-up and making videos for social media. And she now gets to work with all three every day! Defying doctor’s ‘expectations’ for a bleak future, the 20-year-old has Down Syndrome but hasn’t let her developmental delays stop her from going into business as a Nutrimetics Consultant, serving up skincare tips to the many customers she’s become a hit with.”
