THIS BOOK IS FOR ALL THOSE WHO GOT KNOCKED DOWN AND CAME UP SWINGING.
Paige VanZant is a rising Mixed Martial Arts star in the UFC's women's strawweight division and holds a reputation for her ability to defeat obstacles and brutal fights in and out of the octagon. Long before she was a fighting champion and household name winning over fans on Dancing with the Stars with her beauty, strength, and infectiously bold personality, Paige struggled with her self-esteem.
On Dancing with the Stars, Paige won hearts when she opened up for the first time about being bullied but there is so much more that she hasn't shared until now. The journey that brought Paige to the UFC is a stunning story of overcoming tragedy and finding the strength and skills to defend oneself in the face of evil. Within the pages of Rise is a girl who was so severely bullied in highschool she had garbage thrown on her, so tortured she had to move hometowns. She sought refuge but nothing worked until one day, feeling spiritually broken and emotionally shattered, she visited her dad at his gym, and everything changed: she decided to fight back. She became Paige VanZant, a bone-breaking, head-smashing competitor and world renowned fighter.
Rise is the moving and inspiring journey of a woman who is not only one of the toughest fighters in the world, but also a beloved symbol of strength.

#Repost @sassafrassiful with @get_repost ??? I can not say enough about how inspirational and motivating and genuine this book is. It is and isn’t just a memoir about one person’s experience. She has somehow lived our collective experiences as many different women, weaved in shortcomings we have as humans, and transcended it all in a way that we secretly wish we all could - AND she makes that transcendence seem possible for all of us - victim or bully. I’m so impressed with her and her story, and surprised it came from someone so young. There is no doubt that there is a light from beyond her that she is reflecting and bringing to a lot of people that need it. Thank you for putting your heart out there, Paige. I wonder if you’ll ever know how many people you’ve just helped.
The application of this book is far-reaching!
