Name of Fangirl: Morgan
Fangirl’s School Grade: 6th
What is her Fangirl interest?
Sci-Fi/fantasy – The Clone Wars, Rebels, Harry Potter, The Hobbit , Percy Jackson.
As a infant we watched ST:DS9 together. When the Clone Wars came out she latched on the story and characters and started reading some of the juvenile books. This small beginning has just snowballed and now she loves the Sci-Fi/Fantasy world.
Why did you decide to shine the spotlight on this Fangirl?
It is her constant effort. While gifted in math, her passion lies in reading. She burns through books (1 to 2 a week) and her friends have said she reads too much (my response is “never”). She keeps her grades up (straight “A”s) and ignores the pressure of being called a “geek” – she truly has embraced who she is and it makes me proud. Now she is introducing her 4 year old sister to Rebels and the two watch every week together.
How does this Fangirl express her fandom?
It is in her reading and discussion of the books. She is branching out into Sci-Fi movies and TV – LOVES building Sci-Fi Legos and is also working on her own Sci-Fi/fantasy story.
What is her favorite Fangirl item that she cannot live without?
Her books… all of them. Star Wars, Potter, Jackson, etc. she lives for her books (we have 5 book cases of just HER books)!
