“It was funny, because when I first started speaking to kids, it was about following your dreams and not being afraid to go after what you want in life,” he told The Undefeated. “And trying to inspire them and encourage them to go after their goals. And when kids would ask me about bullying, I thought somebody had looked me up or whatever. I was like, ‘How do you know that? How did you know that I was bullied?'”
He continued, “Then I figured, why not speak about my experiences and how I got over them? Because it could motivate or hopefully inspire kids to do the same.”
As for his future plans, Quinton told TMZ that he is aiming to lose another 64 pounds by May 10, which is in honor of his late mom’s birthday.
