Author: Meg Zucker

Read her recent blog post for the VA website:



Meg Zucker is the Founder and President of Don’t Hide It, Flaunt It (DHIFI), a non-profit organization dedicated to advancing acceptance, understanding, tolerance and respect for people’s visible or invisible differences, and the author of Born Extraordinary: Empowering Children with Differences and Disabilities (published by TarcherPerigee/Penguin Random House). Meg was born with Ectrodactyly, a genetic condition which results in her having shortened forearms, one finger on each hand and one toe on each foot which she passed on to two of her children. A Wall Street lawyer with over twenty years of experience in the field of anti-money laundering, Meg was inspired to start DHIFI when her oldest child was bullied in elementary school because of his physical differences. For the past seven years, DHIFI has partnered with Scholastic Inc. to provide Social Emotional Learning/ empathy programming to students nationwide.

Meg has combined her skills as a prominent anti- money laundering speaker and her personal experience to become an inspirational and impactful speaker to audiences ranging from students and faculty in schools to community groups and Fortune 500 corporations. Her speeches have reached millions of people across the country, and she has empowered attendees to celebrate their visible and invisible differences, create cultures of inclusion and spread empathy.

Sharing her message of empathy and empowerment, Meg has been featured on TODAY (NBC) and My Extraordinary Family (The Learning Channel). Meg is profiled in the 2021 book The Female Lead: We Rise By Lifting Others. Meg’s articles have appeared in primary national print media and magazines such as USA TodayParents magazine and The Forward.
