Charlotte Ann often goes on social media to educate people on the traveller and gypsy community.
Some of her videos have received backlash, but Charlotte wasn't having it.
She responded to one mean troll who wrote: "Why do you not pay your way?? Is it because you don't work? And don't have your own money. Stand on your own two feet, get an education and a job."
But Charlotte, who is a social care worker pointed out that the woman couldn't have been more wrong.
She revealed that just because she left school at the age of 11, following gypsy traditions, it didn't mean she had no qualifications.
