"It's the people who genuinely love you" - Kamila Valiyeva on fans

Valiyeva tries not to refuse photographs and autographs.

Kamila Valiyeva described how she copes with the increased attention.

"I understand that there's no getting away from it. I also have my idols, and sometimes I want to see them, have my picture taken and get an autograph. It's a normal human desire. So if I have an opportunity, I never turn down a fan's request. They are people who genuinely love you." she said.
