Empowered Through Music

Long Island teen celebrity and singer/song writer Meredith O’Connor delivered an important message about anti-bullying to seventh- and eighth-grade students at Edmund W. Miles Middle School.

During the 45-minute presentation, O’Connor shared her personal testimony about how she overcame bullying and named the people in her life that helped her along the journey. She shared her inspiration behind some of her most popular songs and performed “The Game,” “Just the Thing” and “Being Me.” She welcomed questions from the students about her experiences with bullying, personal life and success as a singer. Following the assembly, O’Connor signed autographs and took photos with the students.

Based on her personal experiences, O’Connor became an advocate for victims of bullying and an anti-bulling spokesperson for thousands of young people in their schools, taking questions and raising awareness about bullying.
