“Confidence is the sexiest thing a woman can have. It’s much sexier than any body part . “Aimee Mullins.

The other day I came across an article about Aimee Mullins, the amazing Athlete /Model / Actress / Superwomen and the latest L’oreal Paris spokesperson. Listening to her story literally gave me the chills. It is absolutely remarkable what she has accomplished in her lifetime this far!

Aimee is best known for becoming the first amputee in history, male or female, to compete in the NCAA, at Georgetown’s Division I track team. She was outfitted with woven carbon-fiber prostheses that were modeled after the hind legs of a cheetah. She went on to set World Records in the 100 meter, the 200 meter, and the long jump..

Aimee became a muse to Alexander McQueen ,walking the runway in his London show using intricately carved wooden prosthetics.

And those are just to name a couple of her amazing accomplishments. I highly recommend watching the links below to learn more about this amazing woman!
