As you know, I have been trying this new thing for me where I tell you about a book I loved and share a free ebook link to that book if possible.
Why I picked this book?
I’m someone who always foughtor at least tried to for all accessible for everyone regardless of whether there is a disability or not. Having access to everyday life is a human right. In the
case of disability, inaccessibility can be dangerous or life-threatening to us, as it was in a situation that Nyle’s family faced. This might be a spoiler, but I was so happy when I learned that Nyle is bi.
THE DOCTOR ROLLED A MACHINE into the room and parked it at the foot of my mom’s bed, next to a pair of bassinets with stainless steel legs and transparent plastic cradles. Inside the bassinets were my brother Nico and me, both of us just a day old. The doctor unspooled wires from the machine and reached down into each bassinet to stick little felt-pad sensors on the sides of our heads, near our ears. He turned back to the machine, pressed a button, and heard a beep—the test had started.
A heartfelt and inspiring memoir and Deaf culture anthem by Nyle DiMarco, actor, producer, two-time reality show winner, and cultural icon of the international Deaf community.
Before becoming the actor, producer, advocate, and model that people know today, Nyle DiMarco was half of a pair of Deaf twins born to a multi-generational Deaf family in Queens, New York. At the hospital one day after he was born, Nyle “failed” his first test—a hearing test—to the joy and excitement of his parents.
In this moving and engrossing memoir, Nyle shares stories, both heartbreaking and humorous, of what it means to navigate a world built for hearing people. From growing up in a rough-and-tumble childhood in Queens with his big and loving Italian-American family to where he is now, Nyle has always been driven to explore beyond the boundaries given him.
A college math major and athlete at Gallaudet—the famed university for the Deaf in Washington, DC—Nyle was drawn as a young man to acting, and dove headfirst into the reality show competitions America’s Next Top Model and Dancing with the Stars—ultimately winning both competitions.
