Vanessa Grimaldi, 29 was born and raised in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. She was a special education teacher at Galileo Adult Centre and comes from a large Italian family and is fluent in both French and Italian. Vanessa is largely known for being a contestant on Season 21 of ABC’s The Bachelor, and ultimately winning the final rose and becoming engaged to Nick Viall in 2017.
Being a special education teacher and bringing awareness to students with learning disabilities is something Vanessa is extremely passionate about. She wanted to use her platform to give back to the community that is so dear to her heart and so she launched her charity organization No Better You - with its first fundraiser taking place in Montreal. Proceeds raised from ‘No Better You’ will help to advance education by providing specialized tools and programs such as sensory rooms for exceptional learners across Canada.
