Hey cupcakes! I haven't done a "My Experience" post in quite some time, so I thought I would share my opinions on a talk I got to go to last year. If you don't know who Nyle DiMarco is, he is both the winner of America's Next Top Model and Dancing with the Stars!
He also is deaf and is an amazing inspiration for the deaf community! I was really intrigued to see how his "talk" would work, because he only speaks in American Sign Language. During the event, he stood on the stage and signed, while his interpreter sat in the first row with a microphone translating for him. This was super awesome because it didn't take away from what he talking about.
All in all, I loved his talk!!! He started with his life story (can you believe he wanted to be a math professor!), and he was just so down to earth and hilarious. He was asked to model over Instagram, and he decided to pursue modeling to bring awareness to the deaf community. It was amazing to see how he only chose that path to help other people! <3
Overall, I was so impressed by his presentation. If you ever have the opportunity to see him, I would totally recommend it! :D
