Name of Fangirl: Rachael
What is her Fangirl Interest?
Rachael loves books, Star Wars, Ender’s Game, and all kinds of fun stuff!
Why did you decide to shine the spotlight on this Fangirl?
I admire Rachael’s passion for reading. I thought I liked to read, but she’s on another level. I believe that being an avid reader makes a person better and more well-rounded. She’s a constant source of inspiration for me to pick up books.
How does this Fangirl express her fandom?
She expresses her fandom through reading books and comics and talking about which ones she enjoys.
What is her favorite quote of personal motto?
She has two. The first is more a motto, and it’s the idea that nothing happens without reason. She can’t look at the things in her life – even the things she considers horrible and heart-wrenching – without seeing other things that have come as a result. She tries to see every opportunity, lost or taken, in that light. Her favorite quote is Eleanor Roosevelt’s “No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.”
What is her favorite fangirl item that she cannot live without?
She doesn’t really have a single item she cannot live without, and she doesn’t collect much outside of books. She carries the memories of sitting in line for Rent 20+ times, getting marriage proposals for vehemently defending her opinion on where the Star Wars prequels went wrong on a male-dominated email list and the first time she walked onto the floor at San Diego Comic Con in her heart. The memories are what she never wants to live without. The closest she comes to physical items are the VHS copies of Star Wars and Return of the Jedi that her dad unearthed from storage a few years ago. She was pretty excited about those and packs them up and carries them with me every time she moves.
