How do you share your fandom with others?
I love cosplay. Sometimes it’s the one thing that keeps me going in life. But I don’t just cosplay for myself. My favorite thing to do is to volunteer at places where I can share my love of cosplay with others. What’s better than being able to meet that one character who you’ve looked up to for so long?
What does it mean to be a fangirl?
Being a fangirl means to be a part of something more; something bigger than yourself. It means to be a part of a community of people who will accept you, no matter what. It means to be… You!
Who is your role model?
Ahsoka Tano. I know she’s not real, but she’s the one person I can always count on. She has always been there for me, through the good and the bad. I’ve never come across another character quite like her. She was so young when we first met her, but she showed incredible amounts of power right from the start. But she’s not only strong and powerful. She’s also incredibly kind. Even alongside that sassy and snippy attitude that she tends to show. #AhsokaLives!
