what people are saying about Meredith O'Connor's school tour

"Meredith is not your traditional anti-bullying spokesperson. She is a teenager turned model, actress, song-writer, and singer. She is not afraid to speak candidly about the ridicule she faced as a young teenager. She used these events as the inspiration for her self-written song, “The Game”. In this track, she sings about the importance of being true to oneself. She uses the stage as a platform to bring awareness to students about how their actions can negatively affect others, but she also shows how pursuing one’s dreams can help them develop confidence and find happiness."

 Angie M Watt, Clarkstown North Asst. Principal, Congers NY

 "The message is so important for the students and so is Meredith's story on a whole, and the lyrics of her beautiful songs are so very meaningful and a lot of the students can relate and can share their own memories and experiences. Your [program] is GREAT!"

 Frank Persico,  Teacher ABGS Middle School,  Hempstead, NY

Hi Meredith. I know the chances of you seeing this are SO slim, but here it goes... I don't know, tonight's been tough. I've been crying for three hours... At first over something my parents said, but then over everything wrong my life. I was just desperately scrolling through my phone, trying to find a reason to continue my 5 weeks clean of self harm when I stumbled across a comment on one of my photos. Someone told me to watch your video to your song "The Game" because it changed her life. And I watched it. And it changed my life, just like it changed her's. I didn't pick up my blades tonight, and I don't plan to for the remainder of the night. I know that might seem so insignificant to you, but to me, I've actually crossed a huge boulder. Because not picking up the blade tonight was the difference between life and death.... But the lyrics to your song picked me up tonight. I can't promise you that I'm not crying so hard I can't breathe, but the lyrics in your song... They're powerful. Yeah, I can't live off the promise that that tomorrow's gonna be a better day, but your video reminded me of the light at the end of the tunnel and I realized that pain ends. So thanks. Thanks for saving my life tonight. Thanks for being a singer, but using your voice for something larger than singing. Thanks for taking time out of your busy life to read this comment I've made with puffy eyes. The world needs more people like youcomment to Instagram post @meredithoconnor 2/1/2015
