Communication is the very foundation of our ability to thrive in life. But what happens when our disability hinders our ability to communicate? Millions of deaf children around the world lack proper education, which affects the quality of life as adults. Growing up deaf, Nyle now shares his vision of improving the lives of deaf children around the world. He manages to get his message across loud and clear – communication is always possible. Nyle DiMarco is a model, an actor and also an activist. In 2014 he became the second male winner and the first deaf contestant to win AMERICA’S NEXT TOP MODEL. Only two years later he added the Mirror Ball Trophy to his collection after winning DANCING WITH THE STARS. As a model, he has walked the runway for Giorgio Armani at Milan Fashion Week. Yet, his greatest acchievement was to become the face of the deaf community and disabled people worldwide. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
