Why did you decide to shine the spotlight on this fangirl?
I have been a sci-fi geek since I was a child, watching Star Trek: TNG with my dad and re-runs of Tom Baker as the Doctor. Being a fan for me is not just a casual thing, it’s a way of expressing myself. I love to imagine new worlds and traveling through time and space. Being a history buff is part of my obsession with time travel movies and shows, and a passion for tech, looking toward the future, just makes all aspects of sci-fi all the more exciting!
How does this fangirl express her fandom?
I proudly wear my fan tee shirts on the weekends, and at schools, I carry around my Sonic Screwdriver flashlight on my keychain, as well as hanging a giant poster of all the Doctors as owls in my owl themed classroom, and wearing a Mockingjay pin. At home I have dolls for all my fandoms, such as Queen Amidala, the Doctor and Rose, and Katniess Everdeen. I wear TARDIS socks, and love to dress geek chic like the Tenth Doctor when I’m teaching!
What is her favorite quote or personal motto?
Alons-y! I call it out to my students nearly everyday when getting them to follow me anywhere!
What is her favorite fangirl item that she cannot live without?
My sonic screwdriver! I use it all the time on my students and it seems to have a strange effect on them…they stop talking!
