Hopefully that publicity gives her the recognition she deserves! Although it shows the power of social media followers the more followers you have then the more sponsors are likely to get involved. 
 

Funny at the end of the interview from a lady asking for help to fund training etc the guardian have a section underneath also asking for money HA!!!!!
