Vanessa Grimaldi is the name on everyone’s lips after winning Nick Viall’s heart and getting engaged to him on The Bachelor finale — but do you know everything about her?

The 29-year-old is a special education teacher from Montreal, Quebec, Canada, and her newfound fame has already seen her starting to put her celebrity to good use — setting up a new charity called No Better You.

The charity aims to help and raise awareness of those with special needs.

She says on the website: “As a special education teacher, I aspire to empower my students and help raise awareness. Stay tuned & remember, there’s #NoBetterYou.”

Vanessa recently posted about the new venture on her socials, where she has seen her fan-base skyrocket while appearing on The Bachelor.

Special education teacher, charity work, The Bachelor — you’d think Vanessa had enough on her plate. But this is a lady with a lot of strings to her bow, and she’s also worked as an actress in the past, appearing in several TV series and mini-series.

Hopefully we’ll see a lot more of her on our screens soon.

As well as French, Vanessa can also speak Italian — a country whose food has a big place in her heart. She is a big foodie — but always keeps herself in amazing shape by taking part in sports and working out.
