When she was just one year old, Aimee Mullins became a double amputee, and her parents were told she would never walk. But today she is a Paralympic record-breaker, actress, model and public speaker. Mullins believes her experiences of adversity actually opened the doors on her potential, giving her the determination and resilience to achieve more than anyone could have imagined.
