Name of Fangirl: Katie
Fangirl’s Occupation: Lifeguard and Swim Instructor while looking for a job in post production (largely because of George Lucas and Ben Burtt).
What is her Fangirl interest?
Star Wars! I have been a fan since I was 4! I also love Vampire series (Vampire Academy, Blue Bloods, House of Night) or anything Young Adult. as well as The Walking Dead, Harry Potter, Game of Thrones and Pokemon.
Why did you decide to shine the spotlight on this Fangirl?
I have been Fangirl for as long as I can remember. Even during grade school when I was made fun of for the things I liked I kept flaunting my love for my fandoms. I can honestly say Star Wars has saved my life! All the rough patches I have been through I either binge watch Star Wars movies, bonus features and/or The Clone Wars.
How does this Fangirl express her fandom?
My room is covered with Star Wars and Pokemon objects. I wear my Walking Dead hoodie all the time along with all my Star Wars shirts and jackets! I always carry around my kindle or a book in case I have any spare time to read one of my YA series or Star Wars novels (I have over 200). I also have many traditional board games but of course they are all the Star Wars editions! On Twitter almost everything I tweet is about Star Wars, Pokemon and YA books! I am currently working on gluing all my Star Wars puzzles together to make a puzzle wall mural.
What is her favorite quote or personal motto?
Love what you love! Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise!
What is her favorite Fangirl item that she cannot live without?
My multiple language Star Wars tee! It always starts some kind of conversation.
