This talented Paralympian athlete has many more tricks up her sleeve. She is also an amazingly beautiful model and actress. Aimee was born with Fibula Hemimilia, a condition which consists of being born lacking the fibula bone in both legs. Inevitably Miss Mullins underwent amputation of both legs beneath the knees. She then began the use of prosthetic legs at the tender age of only two. Not only did she master their use, she took herself to great athletic heights which included her participation in sports such as skiing, swimming, softball, soccer, and biking.
