Vail has been upfront about her troubled childhood. She said she was bullied and traumatized; she has since overcome those challenges and pushes herself each day to seek and find goodness.

"When you’re struggling, when life seems like it’s not going to get any better, when you’re bullied and people are making fun of you, just believe that you’re meant for something bigger," Vail said on her website. "You will go on to do great things in life. You will be successful in however you measure success, qualitative or quantitative. Just hang in there and keep your chin up." Check out Theresa's website!
