ONLINE BULLYING
During the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro she was targeted online by critics of her body shape at the competition. "I was sad. It really hurt me. I am not an emotionless robot. And it was my birthday as well. However, my parents were there and they helped bring me back to earth. In the end you should only pay attention to the criticisms from those who care about you." In 2017 she took part in an anti-bullying advertising campaign that aimed to inspire women. (debate.com.mx, 15 Aug 2017)
