Duane Zingale is a Marketing Connection Consultant and founder of the digital marketing group Legacy Catalyst. What you may not know is that Duane and his daughter Ariasha share a rare craniofacial disorder called Treacher Collins Syndrome, which affects the development of facial bones and tissue. For the Zingales, this condition results in hearing loss and the need for aids and prosthetics.
Together with his wife Becky, Duane has made a side pivot to initiating meaningful conversations with kids about inclusion, acceptance, and friendship. They do this through the Zingales' Our Wonder Family social media presence, viral YouTube videos, and their children's book Wonderfully Different, Wonderfully Me - a story that belongs in every household, classroom, and clinic.
