Marlee never let her circumstances dictate her future, having lost her hearing when she was only 18 months old. She went on to become the youngest recipient of the Best Actress Oscar for her performance in the film Children of a Lesser God. Marlee recently broke another barrier when she and the cast from her Apple TV+ film, CODA, became the first deaf actors recognized as Best Ensemble in a feature film at the SAG Awards. CODA also won the prestigious Best Picture recognition at the 2022 Oscars. Marlee was appointed by President Clinton to the Corporation for National Service and joined President Obama at the White House in ceremonies celebrating the 20th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act. In 2012, she released her first app, appropriately titled Marlee Signs, to help millions of smartphone users learn American Sign Language.
