  • Aimee Mullins encourages Northeastern graduates to foster childlike spirit

    Boston Globe - 05/07/2018

    More than 4,000 Northeastern University students received diplomas Friday, along with a message urging them to embrace curiosity and daydreaming delivered by Paralympic athlete and actress Aimee Mullins.

    Mullins, 41, encouraged graduates to maintain their wonder and always seek out new things. The double amputee was born without fibular bones in both legs and has had prosthetic legs for most of her life. She recounted her first 100 meter race, during which she broke the world record despite it being her first attempt.
