Miller posted pictures on his Twitter account that have since been retweeted more than 13,000 times and liked by 36,000 people -- because Biles herself retweeted Miller. 

"A lot of social media handles reached out," Nyla's mother, Jessica Williams, said. "They were inspired that a child her age felt ... 'that could one day be me.'"
