I work out a lot.
– Nyle DiMarco
My sexiest feature is my body.
I love working with photographers.
I would love to work with Mario Testino. I respect all the work he has done and is doing.
Seriously, I don’t find not being able to hear an obstacle or a boundary. For me, and for many of us, it is an advantage, and it’s a part of my identity, in fact. It’s a huge part of who I am.
I am the fourth generation of being deaf.
We have over 25 deaf individuals in my family.
I am one hundred percent ready to be a spokesperson for the deaf community.
I’m fortunate to be a part of the ‘ANTM’ family.
I started to realize that there are a lot of people who are unaware of deaf culture, and I’ve been given a great platform to reframe the deaf community.
American Sign Language requires a lot of facial and body expression.
I was born deaf. Sound never existed in my life, and this is completely normal to me.
Right after college, I was trying to figure out what to do. Teach? Act? Model? Do PR for the deaf community? And now I’m doing all I dreamed of and more.
Since I knew my deaf identity since birth, it wasn’t hard for me to be comfortable, confident, and independent in a hearing world.
I was doing a little modeling on the side. Then ‘ANTM’ found me on social media, and it pretty much flipped my life around, all for the better.
Own your identity. Love who you are in the world. Love your deafness.
I’ve never wanted to hear.
I want to use my celebrity for good.
I feel like I can see the music and can see how the character of the music actually flows. For me, that’s music to my eyes.
I’m fortunate to have blue eyes!
I had to live with the models in one big house for two months, 24 hours a day. Only a few of them actually learned how to sign… I couldn’t really communicate with anybody, and I felt isolated.
I think being deaf gave me an increased sense of sight.
There are so many deaf kids out there being deprived of their own language.
Often in the past, when we have had a deaf person in the spotlight, we have been portrayed badly. It was up to me to change that.
Am I complaining about my deafness? No, I am not.
I feel the need to reframe our community positively and better deaf youth’s lives, and with the ‘DWTS’ platform, I can – but it’s not enough until I win.
I love it when I surprise photographers that, despite the fact that I am deaf, I am capable of meeting their vision. I love it that I can read their body language and know what they do not like and what they do like.
I do not like fancy or chain restaurants. I live for local spots.
A relationship isn’t a priority of mine but, you know, I’m hoping soon enough.
Growing up, I was always involved in the deaf community.
