    Yes. People whom I know and who sees her often tell that she is now much bigger than at 2010/11 season.

I don't think it's because she didn't want to deal with her fans, but more that she was your typical teenager who didn't want to be seen publicly. Sometimes we forget that these skaters are still teenagers and still dealing with their own issues with their bodies and what not.
    She is quite friendly with much younger than she, unknown for her skaters who want to talk with her.

    It may be forgotten how young are skaters if seeing them only on ice. I know that even 8-years-old skater on ice may look as serious, almost senior skater (only with lower technical level). Not on the ice this skater is a child whose interests and behaviour are typical for his/her age.
