Inspiring Celebrity: Miranda Cosgrove
Written by Corrina Jean | May 26, 2011
Miranda Cosgrove recently turned 18. Although she is the same age as Miley Cyrus and has a lot of acting experience, one thing she doesn’t seem to have is a lot of media coverage.
You may remember Miranda from School of Rock, where she costarred with Jack Black. She was also on Nickelodeon’s Drake and Josh, portraying the role of their little sister, Megan. Currently, she is starring in her own Nickelodeon show, iCarly. Even though I’m 23, I actually watch (and enjoy!) this show. It’s very wholesome and funny but not in a suggestive way like some shows (Victorious for example featured Ke$ha in one of its episodes).
For her 18th birthday, Miranda celebrated her birthday at an event for St. Jude’s Research Hospital. There are a lot of young celebrities who participate in charity work but often the escapades of their personal lives (like excessive partying) draw more attention than their good deeds. For Miranda, her good deeds seem to be the only things that get reported, if anything at all.
I think she’s an exceptional role model for young girls. She’s beautiful and talented and she shows that you don’t have to flaunt yourself to be successful.
