Photographer Mimi Kuo-Deemer has traversed the globe taking pictures of women. It was in China, the site of the 2008 Beijing Olympics, where she saw women come together across nationalities, cultures and politics for the world's highest profile international sporting event. But for her, the most inspiring champions were not at the Olympic Games, but at the Paralympics, a counterpart sporting event for athletes with disabilities. On assignment to photograph U.S. Paralympic athlete and Iraq war veteran Melissa Stockwell, Mimi witnessed unity, strength and triumph through her camera lens.
