Paige VanZant Opens Up About Returning To Her Hometown Where She Was Bullied

Paige VanZant waves to the cameras while arriving at ABC Studios for Good Morning America in New York City on Wednesday morning (May 25).

The 22-year-old UFC fighter joined her pro partner Mark Ballas, plus winners Nyle DiMarco and Peta Murgatroyd on the program to chat about the season and her second place finish.

Speaking with People earlier, Paige opened up about returning to the hometown where she was bullied so badly that her family moved.

“I recently got asked to go back to the town and speak at a school my aunt teaches at,” Paige shared. “I’ve been wanting to speak to students for a long time now but I just wasn’t quite sure how to go about it. So what a better place to start than the town where I had my own problems.”

She added, “It happens to everybody, but with social media I feel like it can be even worse now. You can’t change everyone. There’s going to be mean people out there. But no matter what you’re going through, there is a brighter future and the hurt and pain you’re feeling is real but there is a light at the end of the tunnel.”
