Google translation of her IG post with 4 photos from the award ceremony in Vienna:
Figure skating began for me from early childhood and at the moment it has been with me all my life every day. I really like to do what I do. And for such happiness - to do what I love - I am very grateful to my parents, who so believed in me, that they helped me to follow my dream. I am very grateful to each of my trainers, who put their efforts into me and spent their time on me. Thanks to their every word, I am the one who I am now and continue to work on myself and my skills. And, of course, it is very pleasant that my efforts and efforts were so highly appreciated. Many thanks to everyone who voted for me. Doing your favorite thing is a great happiness, to realize that the way I do my favorite thing, valued by amateurs and professionals of this business is doubly pleasant! Thank you very much for the support I received!
