Aimee Mullins

Aimee Mullins has built a career as an athlete, model, actor and activist for women, sports and the next generation of prosthetics. Born without fibular bones, Mullins had both of her legs amputated below the knee when she was an infant. She learned to walk on prosthetics, then to run – competing at Georgetown as a champion sprinter, then setting world records at the 1996 Paralympics in Atlanta. In 1998, Aimee made her runway debut in London at the invitation of Alexander McQueen. She’s a passionate advocate for a new kind of thinking about bodies and identities. Aimee also has received accolades for her work as an actor. She is currently starring as Isis in the Matthew Barney’s “Ancient Evenings” project, an adaptation of the novel by Norman Mailer. Aimee is honored to be one of two Chef de Missions to represent Team USA for the London 2012 Games. She was recently signed as a new global face of L’Oreal Paris.
