Nyle DiMarco: Embrace your differences

Sep 15, 2017

Nyle DiMarco was born into a multigenerational deaf family so it’s the only world he’s ever known. On Thursday, he shared his compassion, talents and activism for raising awareness and promoting the importance of language within and beyond the deaf community as the first speaker in this year’s HYPE Career Ready Program.

Years ago, when Nyle was living in Florida, a volleyball friend asked him a thought-provoking question: “He asked me if I wished I could hear. My answer was no. My life would be so different.”
