Nyle DiMarco does not consider himself to be disabled by deafness and sees his media profile as an opportunity to bring awareness to Deaf culture. He views deafness as an advantage in modeling because he is accustomed to conveying messages without speaking. He also holds the belief that Deaf roles should be played by Deaf actors.
Fact: DiMarco have over 25 Deaf members in his family. Yes, it is genetic; However only 10% are born to Deaf parents. Come and meet his family and learn what Nyle do everyday and with his activism for #DeafTalent. ASL vlog with closed captions.

This video exists because last year I was named "BeYoutiful" by a Deaf owned company, Convo.
DiMarco is a spokesperson for LEAD-K (Language Equality and Acquisition for Deaf Kids). He is also a signer and creative collaborator on The ASL App, an app that teaches conversational ASL.
In 2016, DiMarco started The Nyle DiMarco Foundation. It is a non-profit organization with the purpose of providing more access to resources for Deaf children and their families.
