Guest Bio: Erin W Phillips, known as DM3 in gaming communities, got her gaming name by flipping her initials, EWP to DM3, which is a good analogy for her life. Erin has never really fit in the expected mold of what people said she wouldn’t or couldn’t do so She flips that thinking. Raised by a single mother who taught her she can do anything she puts her mind to, Erin’s experiences are a testament to human will. She believes God put greatness in all of us–what we do with that greatness is a choice. You can find DM3 on her channel, DM3 Gaming and Stuff, discussing gaming and creating short skits. She also plays basketball, travels, paints, draws, and does photography. Erin is loving life and taking it one day at a time. DM3 is loving life and taking it one day at a time. Please welcome Erin as she shares her #DeafWoke Journey.
