The Amazing Aimee Mullins…

Aimee Mullins is an American athlete, actress, and fashion model best known for her collegiate-level athletic accomplishments, despite a medical condition that resulted in the amputation of both of her legs. You can read more about her here.

The following is a quote from her presentation at a recent TED (Technology, Entertainment & Design) Conference: “Everyone has something rare and powerful to offer our society.”

Her presentation focusses on how we can all either uplift or hinder the power of our children through language and the way we perceive and relate to their apparent “disabilities”. In her experience, adversity has been an opportunity to discover her personal power and the challenge of having a disability has been a gift that has allowed her to live her life more fully. Truly inspiring…

Good Happens.

Peace Grl Out.
