Nyle DiMarco: Living Out Loud

Nyle DiMarco, the winner of “Dancing with the Stars” and “America’s Next Top Model,” empowers audiences to believe they can do and be anything they want in life, no matter the obstacle.

Believing that his deafness is “an asset rather than a limitation,” Nyle builds a bridge between the Deaf and hearing

by shining a light on not only the struggles but also the triumphs of the Deaf culture. Above all, Nyle shows audiences that with a sense of community, commitment to your goals, and belief in yourself, you can accomplish anything.

Student Unions & Activities and the Disability Resource Center present: "Living Out Loud," a talk and Q&A session. Reserve your tickets here: z.umn.edu/NyleDiMarco

Doors: 6pm
Presentation: 7pm

Nyle’s Bio:

Nyle DiMarco won the mirror ball trophy on ABC's Dancing with the Stars (season 22) and was the last model standing on The CW's America's Next Top Model (cycle 22), now Nyle is winning over audiences as an influential leader and ambassador for the deaf community. Born into a multigenerational deaf family, he is an honorary spokesperson for Language Equality and Acquisition for Deaf Kids (LEAD-K) and founder of the Nyle DiMarco Foundation, which works to improve the lives of deaf people around the world. Nyle was also a creative collaborator on The ASL App, created by native deaf signers to teach conversational American Sign Language.

Recently, Nyle was honored by The National Business Inclusion Consortium with The NBIC Hero Award for using his fame to raise the visibility for those succeeding with a disability.

With a passion for language, literacy and advocacy within the deaf community and beyond, Nyle shares his barrier-breaking story as a deaf man who has risen above stereotypes to take the world by storm.
