Aimee Mullins was born without fibulae. She had both her legs amputated when she was just one year old. Today she's an olympian, speaker, actor and much more. In a 2010 Ted Talk she recounts her experience growing up, and emphasizes the power words have to either lift people up and propel them forward, or "put lids on them and cast dark shadows."
