Name of Fangirl: Parris
Fangirl’s Occupation: College junior at Oakland University in Michigan.
What is her Fangirl interest?
I love Supernatural, The Walking Dead, comic books, Harry Potter, Anime, anything Marvel and DC, and she really loves Star Wars and reading–YA fiction is her favorite! And I love to write! I’m hoping one day that I can get into comic-book and screen writing. Going to SDCC and NYCC is on the top of my bucket list! I’ll get there one day.
Why did you decide to shine the spotlight on this Fangirl?
I’ve always been sort of a nerd but I use to hide it because people would make fun of you for liking things that aren’t considered cool to them. Now I feel like more of myself and this is definitely the age of the Fangirls, and I feel like I’m able to express myself more freely within the things that I like. For me being able to be myself and not caring what others think takes a lot of courage, and I’m proud of myself because I’ve come so far. Every girl should be able to be themselves and express themselves freely.
How does this Fangirl express her fandom?
I express my fandom everywhere! From Star Wars rebel alliance and Dean Winchester decals on my laptop and car–I have tons of t-shirts for every fandom that I’m in! Spider-man phone cases, to Marvel heroes combat boots, non-stop postings on my Facebook page of all of the nerdy things I’m obsessed with–to reblogging hours worth of fandomness on my Tumblr and Pinterest.
What is her favorite quote or personal motto?
Ahh…So many! One of my favorite quotes comes from a book from one of my favorite book series (The Infernal Devices; Clockwork Angel) “One must be careful of books, and what is inside them, for words have the power to change us.” -Cassandra Clare
What is her favorite Fangirl item that she cannot live without?
I cannot live without my books! I always have to keep one with me, even if I don’t get the chance to read it that day, I still like to keep one with me. It’s like reassurance or something. Its weird. I know.
