Nyle DiMarco fulfilled his first passion in a heartwarming new video he posted to Twitter on Friday.

In the video, the deaf model, who won America's Next Top Model in 2015 and Dancing With the Stars earlier this year, is seen reading to two deaf children in the sweet 30-second clip.

"Reading a book about colors to two little deaf kids!" he wrote. "Adorable."

Earlier this year, DiMarco opened up to Entertainment Weekly about his dreams of being an educator prior to ANTM discovering him on social media.

"My goals are the same," he told EW. "Now I'm using my stardom to educate the world and invest in deaf children. Seventy percent of parents who have deaf children don't know how to sign. Still. It's one of the reasons I want to do Dancing With the Stars. It's a platform to educate."
