She is in no position to coach or mentor anyone.Anna is posting body checks from her cluttered bedroom while praising her inspirational status as a disabled athlete.

She says, "Skaters are expected to have perfect bodies, perfect dresses, perfect skin and hair, perfect technique...yeah. It can be a heavy burden for anyone to carry...much less someone like me."
But for all her talk of training with the Olympic team at the University of Delaware etc. etc., Anna was never, at any point, anything more than a hobby skater. The levels she tested at and her competition scores attest to this fact. She is using her ostomy as an excuse for not being as good a skater in real life as she is in her fantasies, and using skating as an excuse for clinging to her disordered behaviors.
Attention-seeking vanity isn't a great look on anyone, skater or otherwise.
e: From comments, we can see that Anna is using these posts to reinforce and reify her current preferred narrative to a new group of "friends" who have not yet realized that she is completely - ahem - full of shit.

e2: Per her public posts to other social media, the Instagram commenter decided to try figure skating as part of a New Year's resolution and is an absolute beginner at the sport.

Anna appears to have met her at morning open skate and taken advantage of her naivete. She misrepresents herself as a qualified coach or trainer, when in fact she is a terrifying nutcase with an eating disorder.

e3: Anna says she participated in a medical research study believing it would pay her $340 in cash. After being victimized by a job scam almost half a year ago, she was urgently counting on that money for personal financial reasons, but the study failed to inform her that she would receive compensation in the form of an Amazon gift card, which is useless to her because she does not shop on Amazon. Won't anyone buy an Amazon gift card from poor little Anna?

I wonder why Anna says she does not shop on Amazon. It certainly isn't for ethical reasons, as her blog is lousy with Amazon affiliate links.
Taken together, we can see from these posts that Anna is in a manic phase, embarking on activities and making commitments that she does not have the abilities, credentials, or financial resources to sustain.
She never trained for the Olympics anywhere besides her imagination; even her sister Lydia attained higher skating grades than Anna, and Lydia in no way represents herself as having been a pro amateur skater. They took lessons as kids and skated as a hobby in undergraduate. Millions of suburban girls are sent to those lessons. It does not count as Olympic training, and Anna is a fraud to pretend otherwise.
And you know she'll start harping on the appropriate "fuel" for skating, and start pushing woo powders and zero calorie slop on her as the ideal skating diet.
I hope this girl's parents step in, she sounds young. Anna is a fucking predator.
