Exclusive Interview with NFL’s Super Bowl Champion Derrick Coleman's mom, May! Plus, a Duracell Giveaway! #TrustYourPower

This interview opportunity and prize package are sponsored by Duracell.


I recently had the opportunity to interview the mother of Derrick Coleman, May Hamlin. Derrick is the first NFL deaf offensive player. He also plays for the World Champions Seattle Seahawks. Congrats to Derrick on the Big Game win!! I know May is so proud of him. But she also should be proud because Derrick has never let adversity stand in his way!

In my interview with May, I was able to ask her she handled that adversity, did she ever doubt Derrick's ability and how does she help others that reach out to her. Watch the video below.


Derrick and May hope to inspire people, especially children, to TRUST THE POWER WITHIN to achieve their dreams just like Derrick Coleman trusted that power and he made it to the NFL and the Super Bowl. Duracell filmed a video with Derrick Coleman to promote Duracell's #TrustYourPower campaign.



Derrick's story is inspiring to many people. He is an inspiration to me. And so is May. I applaud her for supporting Derrick every step of the way. It is great to see such a great mom like May. I thank May for taking the time to speak to me and The Art of Random Willynillyness readers. I appreciate her time and answering my questions.

To celebrate Duracell's #TrustYourPower campaign, Duracell has given me a Duracell gift pack filled with Duracell goodies to one lucky reader. To enter, just enter on the Rafflecopter widget below.
