AN INSPIRING MEMOIR FOR ANYONE WHO’S BEEN KNOCKED DOWN AND CAME UP SWINGING
As a young girl growing up in Newberg, Oregon, Paige Sletten was once all energy and full of potential. A natural athlete, Paige excelled at dancing, made the cheerleading squad earlier than most, and even had aspirations of changing into a Disney child star. With a tight-knit family, Paige’s life was once not off course for greatness. Then, one fateful fall night in high school, everything changed when Paige faced a life-threatening sexual assault. It was once in the gym where she “pounded the life out of those ashen memories,” becoming stronger with every punch, kick, and lunge. In this beautiful tale of survival, she writes:
I inhale the power.
I exhale the bullshit.
One strike at a time.
Fighting became Paige’s protected haven; something to live for, and Rise is the inspiring story of how she in the end transformed into a bone-breaking, head-smashing fighter referred to as Paige VanZant. It’s the deeply moving story of a warrior who transformed her pain into power and has grow to be some of the toughest women on the planet; an inspiring journey of someone who was once knocked down in the most devastating way and came up swinging.
