Such was the positive impact of her posts, in fact, that Delaney’s rise to online fame was picked up by Canada’s CTV News in August 2016. “As far as just interaction on a regular basis, we’ve all pretty much gone to our cellphones,” she told the channel. “And so the videos have really helped out a lot, because it gives a little bit more of a personal touch than just a text message or phone call.”
