Zendaya Gives Advice For Fighting Off Cyberbullies

Zendaya is well on her way to joining the legendary list of one-named celebrities.

The 20-year-old actress, singer and dancer is on track to step up alongside the likes of the Madonnas, Ushers and Oprahs of the world -- both in terms of talent and social activism.

Zendaya got her start on the Disney Channel and has recently landed roles in two major films, "Spider-Man: Homecoming" and "The Greatest Show on Earth," in addition to designing her own fashion line and maintaining a record deal.

She's also consistently raising awareness on societal issues, ranging from the water crisis in Michigan to showing support for Standing Rock to the Black Lives Matter movement and many others.


Based on her strong voice on social media, it's no surprise Z paired up with Verizon as part of its #WeNeedMore campaign.

The movement strives to bring technology and hands-on learning to students in underprivileged areas across the nation. The campaign calls attention to those students in underserved areas who aren't exposed to science and technology careers, hoping to expand their minds and dreams.

Zendaya was featured alongside Adriana Lima, David Via, Carl Anthony, Joey Logano and Drew Brees in Verizon's inspiring video.

I had the chance to sit down with Zendaya on the day she filmed the ad to discuss her involvement in the campaign, her opinions on social media and her advice for dealing with cyber bullies.
