Name of Fangirl: Catrina
Fangirl’s Occupation: Channel Manager of the Superheroes section at Moviepilot.com
What is her Fangirl interest?
Catrina seems to love everything, but she’s crazy about comics. Over the past year, I’ve watched her interview my favorite comic book writers and because of her I found out a whole lot about them that I otherwise wouldn’t know. She’s a channel manager at moviepilot.com and handles all of the superhero news, and she’s my top resource when it comes to trustworthy comic and sci-fi movie news. She’s also a gamer and has done a lot to make the community more inclusive to everyone.
Why did you decide to shine the spotlight on this Fangirl?
Catrina is always friendly and welcoming, on top of her game when it comes to the weirdest, geekiest facts in fandom. She’s done a lot of work when it comes to making the geek community better: she used to be the community manager at Geek & Sundry and also runs several online events in gaming to promote positivity in the community.
How does this Fangirl express her fandom?
So outside of starting up some great campaigns for positivity (last year she made the #gamedevswedig hashtag and videos to accompany them) she also runs a podcast with fellow geek girl Sarahtherebel, where they talk about geek culture and social issues in fandom. She does lots of vlogging and is an on-camera host for a bunch of different gaming and comic outlets, too!
