Meredith Prunty, 16 year old actress and anti-bully advocate is relentless in her quest to raise awareness about bullying. In a recent article Examiner.com, reporter Ken Murray writes about Meredith’s anti-bullying efforts, “Unlike other young actresses, Meredith Prunty doesn’t use her growing popularity to make a name just for herself. She is a huge supporter of anti-bullying and makes many public appearances. Just recently she was a guest speaker at the No Bully Zone Summer Splash at the Splash Ultra Lounge and participated in the fashion show where she got to wear some outfits from top Boston designers”.
Meredith is currently one of the busiest young actresses in the New England area with over 13 movies to her credit including role as “Young Lacey” in the movie “Mark of the Dog Rose” and has spent the summer filming “Grown Ups 2”, “Backmask” and the new Steve Carell movie “The Way, Way Back”. In addition, she landed a small role on “Labor Day” and recently was spotted by Seventeen Magazine and MTV while speaking out against bullying at the East Coast National Beauty Pageant. Despite her busy schedule, Meredith makes it a priority to speak out at every opportunity about bullying. Meredith feels that teens need to stop teens. Being a bystander is not acceptable including when it comes to cyber bullying which is on the rise.
No stranger to the media, Meredith has appeared on numerous television interviews, newspaper articles and national publications where she tenaciously spreads the anti-bullying message. In addition, Meredith gained global recognition for her poignant performance as the “Bleeder” in Michael and Marisa’s wildly successful “The Same” anti-bully music video which was seen on sites such as Yahoo! and PBGGoKids. Thousands of fans follow Meredith on Facebook, Twitter and other social media sites creating tremendous social media presence which she uses to effectively promote and communicate anti-bullying awareness. Her loyal fans help Meredith spread the anti-bullying message. An article on Meredith’s anti-bullying efforts that appeared in VIV magazine was shared over 5,000 times and HCAM news director Michelle Murdock reported that their recent story covering Meredith’s speech at “The Brand UR” rally was the most watched video year to date.
