She's 18-year-old Antoaneta Stefanova from Bulgaria, who caught the world's attention in April by achieving a GM norm at a tournament in Hawaii. She already had five IM norms, but no title, as the Bulgarian Chess Federation was slow about applying for it. 'I get no financial support from my federation—it doesn't have money'," says Pergammon Chess, where her photo was on the cover. Here is that article.
